The Fifth Dimension is an inter-dimensional reality that exists outside of the normally accepted space/time continuum. Due to its five dimensional properties, this reality functions off of a completely different set of physics than those found in typical three dimensional environments.

History

As the Fifth Dimension acts as a reflection of imagination and subconsciousness Paula von Gunther created a "Subconscious X-Ray" which uses Kappa Rays to peer into the Fifth Dimension to get an understanding of how captives see themselves and what they actually think. Prisoners protested its use due to how invasive such an capability is, even though the images are abstracts rather than their actual thoughts. Skelly's pride and arrogance for instance meant using the device on him showed an image of him as a strong man in Superman's costume with a top hat and cigar.[1]

Zrfff is the home world of a race of impish beings who manipulate the properties of their dimension as a form of "super-science".

The most recognizable denizen of the Fifth Dimension is the troublesome Mister Mxyzptlk. Another famous hero of Fifth Dimension origins is Yz, the Thunderbolt. Yz, who was originally considered a magical genie, is most famous for his adventures with the Justice Society of America in the 1940's.
