After they last met, after Vandal Savage's return when he journeyed to Earth-One to face Barry-Flash and his pal Green Lantern, this time a villain from their world traveled to Earth-Two to face Jay-Flash. And, as in Savage's case, the sidetrip to a parallel planet was not Abra Kadabra's intention. In fact, Abra had mentally lured Barry-Flash to his native 64th century where he used his advanced science which he masked as "magic" to make it seem like the Flash had murdered him. In fact, Abra was sent back in time, while Barry-Flash was sent to an elaborate escape-proof prison. However, the means by which Abra teleported sent him to the 20th century of an Earth like his own, only in a different universe. It was there that he encounted Jay-Flash, native of Earth-Two, whom he confused with his own Scarlet Speedster. Quickly, Abra caused the older Flash to become immobilized. Meanwhile (relatively speaking), his counterpart was still traped in the 64th century prison cell, seeking a means to escape what seemed like a permanent trap left to him by his futuristic foe. How would the Flashs free themselves?
On 20th century Earth-Two, Jay-Flash quickly recognized Abra Kadabra from "pictures of this character from his Rogues gallery". Ah Flash, your feet may still be fleet but you mind has slowed down with age. In fact, you had this previously confronted this future fiend when he and your Justice Society allies Doctors Fate and Mid-Nite secretly aided Barry-Flash in defeating Abra. Oh well, we'll let that slifde for now. Suffice it to say, Barry-Flash used a chair inside his prison which he vibrated at superspeed to be a "surrogate", so to speak, for himself. The cage his captors captured him in could not take two such superspeeding "entities" and hence Barry-Flash escaped that distant era for his own time centuries earlier, following Abra's path to Earth-Two. After hyper-messaging Jay-Flash back into mobility, the pair of Scarlet Speedsters employed the same means Abra used at the beginning on Barry-Flash, only this time sending him back to his own native time and prison once more.
