DC had previously suspended Berganza in the wake of a BuzzFeed story published Friday in which three women, two on the record and one unnamed, alleged he forcibly kissed and groped them.

Berganza, an editor for a quarter-century at DC Comics, has been fired, DC Entertainment and parent company Warner Bros. announced Monday.

Berganza was the top editor for some of DC's major comic titles and had daily interaction with writers, artists, and other editors.

Allegations against Berganza have persisted for more than a decade, but they never resulted in any permanent disciplinary action until 2012, when Berganza was demoted from executive editor down to group editor.

In fact, Buzzfeed's report wasn't the first time Berganza had been publicly accused of sexual misconduct.

Cartoonist and editor Joan Hilty told BuzzFeed that at a staff party in the early 2000s, Berganza repeatedly and forcibly tried to kiss her, even after she told him no.

In 2016, when DC fired popular veteran Vertigo editor Shelly Bond, the comics community teemed with anger, questioning why capable women were being fired when Berganza, a rumored serial harasser, was allowed to remain. Furthermore, according to Buzzfeed's report, five people reported Berganza to human resources, but even with a demotion from executive editor to group editor, not much was done to stop his behavior. DC Comics has been reached for comment.
