Flash (Super Powers) Custom Action Figure
Flash adapted from a boring stand-up Super Powers Flash. He had the same broad chest as Superman and Batman, but I figure a runner should have a lean build and oversized legs. So I split the chest down and sliced some out of the middle. I also shaved down the top of his head, which was too tall, and thinned his cheeks. And added an athletic cup because male figures shouldn't look emasculated. I shaved off the soft wing bumps and replaced with sharp-looking card. And notched the boot soles. And cut a jagged belt, which required each point to be glued down by hand. It's interesting the figure has hard plastic parts except for the hands and feet, which are rubbery plastic, probably so the feet holes can accommodate pegs to stand up. I PhotoShopped the chest emblem, glued it on, then painted and inked over it. I tried for a Carmine Infantino pose. The jagged lightning on the gloves came out poor, but I gave up trying. I've left him shiny so far, no Dull Cote, for a flashy look.
