Ulp! I had not considered that. Okay, then, cancel that trip into the future.
Whiz Wilson, featured in Ace Comics’ Lightning Comics, didn’t let such things bother him. He made regular trips into the future and got himself involved in adventures. He even found ways to fight the enemies of 1941 with help from the people of year 6000, as in this tale from Lightning #6 (1941).

And of course, Russ Heath’s dramatic drawings are superb.
