Since the mid 1970s, Levitz has been an integral part of DC. Along with publisher Jenette Kahn and managing editor Dick Giordano, he was responsible for the 1980s revitalizing of the company's entire line of heroes — such as Superman, Batman, Flash, Wonder Woman, the Justice League and Green Lantern. Others who played vital roles in the process were writers Marv Wolfman, John Byrne and Alan Moore, artists George Perez and Keith Giffen, and editor Karen Berger. Also, Marvel Comics' then editor-in-chief Jim Shooter, played an inadvertent role in the revitalization when he fired or alienated many important Marvel creators that DC was delighted to pick up.
That paragraph gets away from the topic of Paul Levitz and starts talking about irrevent facts concerning the revitalization of DC Comics.
The following line is just wrong:
In fact, DC is today the only American comics company which provides titles for a wide range of readers: the Looney Tunes and Cartoon Network lines for kids; the traditional DC heroes, bookmarked by Superman and Batman, for teens and older; and the Vertigo line of adult titles for mature readers.
A lot of American comic companies provide titles for different age groups. Marvel has the "Marvel Adventures" and "Marvel Age" lines for young children, the MAX line for adults, and a core line that contains books that appeal to every age group. That's one example, but there are many others including Image, Top Shelf, Slave Labor, etc.
