Jeff Fowler of Evil Genius Productions has created some impressive superhero props of late, including Captain America's shield, Batman and Batgirl's cowls and more, but the artist/filmmaker's coolest accomplishment yet may be transforming current Flash writer and artist Francis Manapul into the Scarlet Speedster himself with an awesome custom Flash helmet.
