So in his previous story, he was fighting a villain who was anti-amusement part, and in this one the villains are anti-housing development. Johnny is awfully pro-construction for a teenager in the 60's with flame powers.
"OK, the first three dimensions are length, height, and width. The fourth dimension is time. The fifth dimension is a place filled with blue skinned aliens..."
No, the 5th Dimension is a Motown act.
(but if you're actually feeling science-y and are willing to slog through a bit of a hard read - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five-dimensional_space)

Odd I always thought the 5th dimension was inhabited by malicious imps with unpronounceable names and funny clothes

Seriously, there's both a Xemu and Valeria in the 5th Dimension? And where was this Xemu when "The Hulk" took his name? (the Titan who bugs the Defenders and such, not Bruce Banner)
And yeah...lucky mischievous imps don't come from the 5th dimension in this universe...they tend to be pointy-headed green aliens from space.
