How to create an empty table from a list where list items become the table columns

The title might be confusing.

 

I have a list as follows

let
    Source = {"c1","c2","c3"}
in
    Source

I want to end up with an empty table as this is where the column names come from the list values.

Thanks to the great efforts by MS engineers to simplify syntax of DAX! Most beginners are SUCCESSFULLY MISLED to think that they could easily master DAX; but it turns out that the intricacy of the most frequently used RANKX() is beyond their comprehension!

DAX is simple, but NOT EASY!
