DC Comics Group Editor Eddie Berganza has been terminated by DC Entertainment. Here is a statement issued jointly by DC and its parent company, Warner Bros.

"Warner Bros and DC Entertainment have terminated the employment of DC Comics Group Editor Eddie Berganza.  We are committed to eradicating harassment and ensuring that all employees, as well as our freelance community, are aware of our policies, are comfortable reporting any concerns and feel supported by our Company.

Berganza was suspended over the weekend after new sexual assault allegations were made public in a Buzzfeed story, with DC announcing a "prompt but careful review."

Berganza started with DC in 1992 and worked his way up to eventually become executive editor of the DCU in 2010. In 2012, DC was made Group Editor. He had most recently overseen editing of the Superman and Green Lantern titles, as well as the current Dark Nights: Metal event.

A replacement for Berganza has not been named.
