As I predicted, DC's stepping up its game to compete with the new Disney-owned Marvel.
Here's a link
to The Los Angeles Times story, one of the first to break it. But for those in a hurry, here are some of the highlights:
* DC Comics will change its name to DC Entertainment.
* Paul Levitz is stepping down as publisher (since 2002) and president (since 1973).
* He will become "a contributing editor and consultant" to DC Entertainment. The New York Times
says he will probably return to Legion of Super-Heroes in Adventure Comics
* Diane Nelson, who among other duties has overseen the Harry Potter franchise at Warner since 1999, was appointed president of DC Entertainment, reporting to Jeff Robinov, president of the Warner Brothers Picture Group.
* Warner Bros. says the intent is to integrate DC more with other arms of Warners, a move they say was in the works for months, but Disney's announcement sped it up.
* No publisher for DC Entertainment has been announced yet.
