The Overlap is a supernatural alternate dimension and a location in the Spawn comic book series.
This strange and sorcerous realm is but a hellish place, and it is home to 2 entities named %^2 and %^9. It is sustained by its inhabitants finding out information about beings from billions of plains of existence and 'feeding' this information to an ancient creature called The Prime.
After the atomic explosion plan backfires, and erupts within The Overlap, this world's inhabitants now have a chance to see what creatures will be affected by this fallout.
The Overlap is said to be the birthplace of real magic, where the laws of science are easily manipulated.
