could just barely make-out Bruce Wayne's penis. This resulted in a whole lot of press, the comic shot-up in demand when it became clear all future printings would erase the offending member, and now the whole Black Label seems to be in trouble...all because of a penis.
Keep in mind us readers have had comics featuring Batman beating criminals to a pulp, his villains viciously torturing and murdering innocents, but seeing a little bit of the Batawang when the hero is changing his clothes (that's right, it is not even a penis presented in a sexual situation) causes a bunch of corporate hand-wringing upon said penis getting a little media attention. I suppose America as a nation is still so full of mixed-up views on the human body that I should not be surprised how much publicity this caused, but it was a fiasco for sure.
