The simplest solution is to use a (quoted) string as the AxesLabel (to 
prevent evaluation), and format it directly using the Front End.  It is 
possible to put formatted 2D expressions into strings. :)

Formatting commands (e.g. italics) are in the Format menu, but they can 
be accessed using keyboard shortcuts as well.
