Batman died in Batman 676, Captain America in Captain America volume 5, issue 25.

I think Spider Man died in Ultimate Spider Man?

Wired has steered you in all the right directions. And yes, Spider-man died in the Ultimate comic universe line. Here is a link to the list of books to read for that story line, Death of Spider-man, on comicbookdb.com. Also, here is a more detailed bio on the story line of Spider-man's death in the Ultimate universe on comicvine.com.

And yes, I think comixology is as best a trusted site as most for buying comics online.

I have been meaning to get Batman myself and I have #655 ready to start out since it seems to be the story where Batman finds out about his Son and was going to read from the onwards.

I would be interested where to start with X-Men and even Avengers due to the new Avengers vs. X-Men that is coming out but it does not seem like something you can just pick up based on reviews I've seen!

For Spider-Man assuming you want the main Ongoing one which is The Amazing Spider-Man I was told to start with the Big Time event which starts at #648! I have read 3-4 so far and seems like a nice jump on point.

You are right, there are soooo many story line plots (over 50 years worth) in each of these characters existence that you could probably start anywhere. It seems to me like you used to read these characters and then haven't followed them in some time. They have all gone though many changes, though if I were you, I would probably start with the recent stuff and then work my way back.

For Spider-man, you might want to start with the biggest recent controversial change in the story line One More Day. This was one of those story lines that got major news coverage outside of the comic book industry. If you want to get direct lead-in story lines to One More Day, then you could also read Civil War and Back In Black.

For Batman, the easiest recent starting point would probably be during the entire DC Universe relaunch The New 52 which was another big news event. So, you could start with all the Batman related relaunch titles like Batman, Detective Comics, Batman and Robin, & Batman: The Dark Knight. If you want to get a direct lead-in to The New 52 reluanch titles then read Flashpoint. If you want to go back earlier before Batman was rebooted, then try great jump on story arcs like the awesome Hush, by greats Jeph Loeb & Jim Lee or Batman & Son, like DarkSynopsis mentioned, by greats Grant Morrison & Andy Kubert. There's also other great reads like Batman R.I.P. & Battle for the Cowl.

For the X-Men, there's always a lot going on in the X-verse though a great recent starting point would probably be the Second Coming. I think this is a great starting point because of all the direct lead-in story lines, Messiah CompleX & Messiah War, as well as related plot threads from earlier story arcs such as House of M, Utopia, Nation X and Necrosha.

Hopefully that all helps in getting you started with the more recent major changes in those characters.

Yeah, definitely start with the Flashpoint story. It's recent, and a great back story to a lot of the changes.

WOW!thanks oraclexview! this is awesome!
and i never read comics.. i only saw the x-men, spider-man and batman cartoons, the old ones from the early 90's and a week ago i just started to want to start reading comics, but i don't have a comic book store near my home, or somewhere near me.. so the only choice i got it's the internet and there is so many comics that i don't really know where to start or what comes after what!
thank you all for the help - i'll try to catch up, hope i'll make it, if not i'll be back to ask again :)
