Didio LOVED comics but he was also the problem.

He harbored toxic people in the industry and kept old tropes and ideas alive.

Hopefully they don't put a bean counter in place of him and maybe someone with newer, younger ideas.

I thought he himsrlf was the toxic person? There was that editor Berganza*that was not known by fans at large who was a sexual harasser, but I don't know of others.

Old tropes and ideas? No marriages and heroes much sacrifice happiness because their personal misery drives them to save lives?

Oh, I know all about Eddie Berganza. He stole two chicks away from me, too.

Yeah. He was a bit toxic too but it was more so harboring a culture of toxicity.

Yeah. Old tropes. He def didnít like sidekicks because it ďagedĒ the heroes. He tried at every turn to kill them off. Especially ones like nightwing, Wally west etc. he refused to reboot allllll the comics when they did the whole rebirth thing. They kept the green lantern and Batman continuity since these two properties were selling which led to convoluted backstories and plot devices to explain things thereby negating what they were trying to do by rebooting things.
