    I wonder how many female writers/artists may have avoided the Superman line just to keep away from him? Depressing thought really.

    This is a comic board, is it not? This story and how it affects women is being discussed at length in plenty of other places. I see no reason why the Superman board cannot discuss what this means for the comics bearing his name. It’s not about “priorities”, it’s about discussing a different angle to a story that has been beaten to death already. Berganza = Bad, mmkay? We got it. Let’s discuss the editorial side for a while.

    Carry on, gents.

    I agree... But do think both sides deserve explored on here. 'Berganza = Bad' TRUE BUT is Berganza's firing going to prove disasterous elsewhere. He's also editing Metal etc, so will this impact on the wider DCU and the actual company.

    Not much to said, beyond that it took more time than it should.

    I agree, both sides should be explored. The problem is when the comics side gets explored & you have people saying “nice priorities”. Berganza is gone, so now there are no priorities to be concerned about. Both topics are equal discussion at the point, imo.

    And I heard they acknowledged that 'Other Senior Industry Figures' could be on the way out too. Anyone suspecting Harras and DiDio all of a sudden
    Has Didio ever been accused of harassment? Why would you suspect that at all. No need to ruin someone's character.

    No. But Harras enabled Berganza’s behavior. He should be demoted at the very least.

    I can think of one female writer of one of the Superman titles over the last...12 years? And I really hope he never harassed her.

    It's less he's accused of Harrassment... More like Harras he could be one of the Enablers

    I can think of Gail Simone and G. Willow Wilson. But that's it, I think.

    He's not wrong though. How many great female creators have we missed out on on Superman books all these years because of him?

    I'm glad he was finally fired. It took way too long to do so. I wonder if the women he assaulted have ever filed charges or taken any other action against him. I hope the offices at DC are now a safe space for any creative person to contribute to the characters they love. Honestly though, it always sticks in my craw when you have a "sorry because we got caught and can't just ignore it" rather that "sorry because this wrong and we'll make sure it doesn't happen again". So I hope this leads to actual change at the DC offices about how these reports are handled.
