DC Fires Eddie Berganza

DC Comics

Berganza had remained employed at DC despite years of allegations against him over unwanted sexual advances and contact, reported BuzzFeed News.

"Warner Bros and DC Entertainment have terminated the employment of DC Comics Group Editor Eddie Berganza", DC Entertainment said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

Berganza had worked with the company since the early 1990s, as a writer on titles such as Superman, Batman/Superman, and Wednesday Comics and as an editor on many of DC's biggest launches of the past decade, including Justice League, Infinite Crisis, and Blackest Night.

Berganza was for years the subject of sexual misconduct rumors in the comics industry, but his departure from the company comes after BuzzFeed published a story on Friday chronicling complaints against him. "But as a fan and supporter, I expect them and Warner Bros to do the right thing and fire Eddie Berganza".

The victim totals could include individuals, businesses, government entities or society as a whole. Crimes motivated by bias against Protestants and Eastern Orthodox Christians both declined.

Another woman who spoke to BuzzFeed anonymously says that in 2012, Berganza forcibly kissed her in a hotel bar while attending Wonder Con in 2012. When Berganza was promoted to Executive Editor, despite multiple complaints to DC's human resources department, as the article states, and Marsham expressing her discomfort to DC Comics Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras, she moved away from working in editorial completely, rather than continue working under Berganza any longer.

The group editor of DC Comics has been fired amid allegations of sexual harassment.

Instances of abuse recounted in the article included Berganza forcibly kissing female co-workers, groping others, and making offensive jokes directed at women. "While we can not comment on specific personnel matters, DC takes allegations of discrimination and harassment very seriously, promptly investigates reports of misconduct and disciplines those who violate our standards and policies". Asselin said that development was "massively demoralising" at the time.

After the 2012 WonderCon incident, Berganza reportedly apologized to DC's all-male staff for his behavior and pledged to change.
