Hypertime Realities refers to any parallel dimension separate from that of the mainstream DC Comics universe. The concept of Hypertime was developed by writer Mark Waid and introduced in the The Kingdom series of Elseworlds books. According to Waid, any and every dimensional reality separate from the norm is a canonical reality, though not inherently tied to the DC Universe proper. As per editorial edict by VP Dan DiDio, the concept of Hypertime was expunged following events chronicled in the 2006 limited series Infinite Crisis and its follow up series 52. Although Hypertime is no longer used by DC, this category includes articles that were not part of the original Pre-Crisis Multiverse, nor are they part of the recreated Post-52 Multiverse.
