Yep, the Latest Batman Comic Shows Off Bruce Wayne’s Bat-Genitals (Photo)
After 79 years, Batman’s penis has finally made its debut in the latest “Batman” comic.

The reveal happens in the first issue of “Batman: Damned,” a limited series from writer Brian Azzarello and artist Lee Bermej. In the scene in question, Batman/Bruce Wayne has returned to the Batcave and begins to pull off his Batsuit. Next come three panels in which a disrobed Bruce is lit from behind, the light clearly and unmistakably accentuating his genitalia.

As of right now, lil’ Wayne can be seen only in the print version of the issue — the digital version has been altered so the Dark Knight’s squire is obscured by shadow. DC Comics hasn’t commented publicly, but Polygon reports that the digital panel was changed because DC editorial doesn’t consider the nudity essential to the story.
