I have a male friend of 20 years of age who has never embraced the comic book multiverse and now he is looking to me to introduce him. I want to present him with a great starter selection that will get him hooked.

The problem is I don't know such a selection myself because when I first started out, I was reading indie and he very much enjoys the Superhero realm.

I would like to know what you guys recommend as a killer superhero selection that is suitable for an impressive introduction toward comic books.

I'm looking for classics and/or on going series.

To be honest I still find myself a comic book newb. But when I first started I went back to the originals. I have a few classic collections of Spiderman and Captain America (my two faves). 


It was a great place to start to read them the way they were written when they first came out. 


On a second note, I am trying to get a few more comics under my belt.... but I live in the desert and must rely on online shopping. 


Can anyone recommend some must read comics?
