This 1 3/8 inch figure is the DC Comics character The Flash as seen in the game HeroClix. The red and yellow streaks behind him are actually tissue paper.
I believe this is the first toy photo I’ve posted to Flickr that was lit by my camera’s flash. I typically use lamps, flashlights, LEDs, etc.
This image is straight out of the camera: no tweaking, no color processing, no cropping, no nothing.
Submitted to the Flickr group 7 Days of Shooting.
The Flash has been seen whizzing through the following:
Have you seen this photo somewhere else? Or are you using it yourself? I would love to hear from you! It's always fun to learn where my photos turn up.

The Flash is the name given to several superheroes in comic books published by DC Comics. Jay Garrick, the first Flash, was created by Gardner Fox and Harry Lampert and premiered in Flash Comics #1 (1940). Each Flash has the benefits of super-speed in some form, including the ability to run very fast and extraordinarily quick reflexes. Although the role has been filled by many people the four most notable include Jay Garrick, Barry Allen, Wally West, and Bart Allen. The Flash costumes have varied but generally feature a lightning bolt on a field of red. Throughout their history Flashes have often been members of the various incarnations of the Justice Society and Justice League with fellow superheroes such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and others. The Flash has appeared in numerous TV series, including The Flash (1990) and Young Justice (2010).
