Eddie Berganza, a high-ranking editor at DC Comics, was sacked by DC and Warner Bros. just two days after he was suspended amid claims that he forcibly kissed and groped three women. He had, during his time with the company, been Group Editor on the Superman family of titles, as well as Executive Editor over DC's superhero line as a whole.

According to BuzzFeed, Berganza "developed a reputation for making offensive jokes or line-crossing comments in the presence of or at the expense of women". Cartoonist Joan Hilty said Berganza kissed and groped her at McGee's in the early 2000s. Today, DC announced that it had officially let Berganza go. In total, five sources told Buzzfeed that they reported Berganza's behavior to superiors working at DC Comics, though it appeared that nothing come of the complaints.

The women who made complaints against Berganza seven years ago have all sense moved on from the company.

On Monday morning, author and comic book writer Marjorie Liu took to Twitter to share that she had "lost count of how many times [she] explicitly told DC editorial that [she] wouldn't write for them because of Berganza".

Several former and current DC employees BuzzFeed spoke with insist Berganza has fully reformed and repented.
