The material manifestation of the popular culture icons Batman and Barbie are examined in terms of the subjectivity suggested by each. This article argues that the essential manifestation of Batman is as a textual object while the essential manifestation of Barbie is as a plastic object. These two modes of manifestation, in turn, are examined in terms of the cultural positions of domination and resistance they reflect.
