174: Miles Morales, Ultimate Spider-Man!

When Peter Parker died in the Ultimate Universe, a young person of color was there to continue his legacy.

Following the events of Secret Wars, he now exists in the main Marvel continuity alongside his inspiration, Peter Parker.

173: Apocalypse!

Born 5,000 years ago as probably the first mutant, En Sabah Nur would become obsessed with the concept "survival of the fittest". Later known as the powerful, evil mutant Apocalypse, he would assemble his Four Horseman and try to eliminate the weak of the world, believing only the strong should survive. This episode should give you all the background you need for the title character of X-Men: Apocalypse.

172: Darkseid!

Born on Apokolips as Prince Uxas, the young man usurped those in line ahead of him to claim the throne. Being ruler wasn't enough so he stole the powers of the Old Gods to become the New God Darkseid. Locked in an eternal war with his brother Highfather of New Genesis, and prophesied to die at the hand of his son Orion, Darkseid became a threat to all who value free will while in his quest to obtain the Anti-Life Equation.

171: Red Robin / Tim Drake

Tim Drake was the third person to serve as Batman's sidekick Robin. Though he carried on a rich comic book tradition, he redefined Robin's role. He served as a detective, Computer hacker, and overall more intellectual Robin. Tim Drake is a character that always emphasizes smarts over guts. As he felt he became his own hero, he added Red to Robin to create a moniker that was all his own.
