The latest entertainment industry figure to come under fire (or firing) for sexual-related offenses is Eddie Berganza, one of the top editors at DC Comics. 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. Following another complaint in 2012, Berganza was demoted to group editor. Rumors of harassment had long followed Berganza.

Berganza had been suspended after an extensive report into the allegations was published last Friday by BuzzFeed.

The people who spoke out have a point.

An anonymous former employee for DC described his behavior as "a gross open secret" that "everybody ... stomached". Cartoonist Joan Hilty said Berganza kissed and groped her at McGee's in the early 2000s.

The BuzzFeed piece shared detailed allegations from Liz Gehrlein Marsham, then a new DC employee, who said Berganza kissed and groped her at a NY bar. The article alleged that Berganza had been engaging in the behavior for years but rose through the comic book publisher's ranks despite his alleged actions.

DC Comics also reiterated its commitment to create a safe and secure working place for employees and everyone that's involved in creating their comic books. According to the report, these women and others reported Berganza to HR, only for him to remain employed. Instead of being investigated, or fired, Berganaza was named executive editor later that same year. But for the victims, as well as the larger crowd of women who are noted to have avoided work at DC because of the well-known threat of Berganza, this will hopefully be a fresh start.

Today, DC announced that it had officially let Berganza go.

DC has fired veteran editor Eddie Berganza following allegations of sexual assault by former employees of the company. "There will be a prompt and yet careful review into next steps as it relates to the allegations against him, and the concerns our talent, employees and fans have shared".
