Synopsis

The President asks the JSA to visit a man at the hospital and that may change his life. They are greeted by Professor Everson who tells them that the man for whom they are to do something for is Joe Fitch, a man with a shady past. The professor had created two serums, one that could save human life and one fatal. Fitch decides to become the guinea pig, but takes the wrong one and is dying. The JSA has one hour to change Fitch’s criminal past, and use the professor’s time ray to go into his past and correct his mis-deeds.

The JSA succeed and Fitch tells Professor Everson that he suddenly feels like a different man – as though he knew that he never committed any of those crimes. As the JSA members re-appear and Joe is thankful, there is a knock at the door and in walks his long lost love Lily D’Arcy. She walks over to Joe’s bed and tells him she she accepts his proposal of marriage, even though she knows he is dying. Later that evening, Joe passes away.
