Dan DiDio out at DC Comics

Big comic books news: Dan DiDio is no long with DC Comics as of today. It's unknown whether he quit or was fired. Dan joined the company in 2002 as VP of Editorial before becoming the VP Executive Editor in 2004. Since 2010 he has been Co-Publisher along with Jim Lee. As of now Lee will remain as sole Publisher.

DiDio has been a big name at the company, as he was a major talking head and helped spearhead the year-long series 52, The New 52 reboot in 2011, as well as the Rebirth relaunch in 2016. He's also the man behind the upcoming Generations miniseries that is set to explore the history of the DC Universe, all before the yet-to-be-announced and supposed relaunch called "5G." Whether the relaunch still happens as planned - or at all - is unknown.

DiDio hasn't been a very well liked figure in the comic community and is noted for his dislike of characters like Dick Grayson and Wally West. DiDio also caused an uproar several years ago when he tossed out the idea of Batwoman getting married and stated superheroes shouldn't have happy private lives.
