Howabout a spinoff title, Bloodshot/Cow with them kissing on the front? Captain Midnight #0 also has a problem with language, though it seems to be the information being imparted rather than the specifically chosen words that's the issue here. Talking of language choice, Captain Marvel notes that you can say "Giant Flying Robot" four times in a[...]
