The Hypercrisis is a framework for understanding the narrative continuity of various media produced through DC Comics, in particular the work of Grant Morrison within that continuity, which partially functions by positing the DC Universe to be a self-aware entity, manifesting in the form of media and interacting through its creators and readers. Alternately: "Grant Morrison is the Empty Hand and Hypercrisis is his Oblivion Machine, a self-sustaining advertisement for Grant Morrison."
The origins of this framework as a fan effort are credited to a series of posts on 4chan's "/co/" board, beginning in late 2009.
