So you have read Flashpoint, that's a good starting point, next one in the list is The Flash, Vol. 1: Move Forward and onward until DC Universe:Rebirth (one-shot special)

Tv show The Flash with Barry Allen? If so, then

Barry Allen started his carrier in the comics in 1959 until 1985 and then he was absent on until 2009. His modern-age series called The Flash: Rebirth when he returned. After that 2 trades came (In comics, a trade paperback (often shortened to trade) is a collection of stories originally published in comic books, reprinted in book format, usually capturing one story arc from a single title or a series of stories with a connected story arc or common theme.) called The Flash Vol. 1: The Dastardly Death of the Rogues and The Flash Vol. 2: The Road to Flashpoint .

After these, a HUGE event came that changed everything called Flashpont that "reset" the continuity and started the New 52 age and it's first story-line called The Flash, Vol. 1: Move Forward . This series (New52) lasted till Spring 2016 and collected 9 trades (the show you watched is based on this era). In early 2016 DC Rebirth came (only name change, everything is continued from New52) but a huge exception: a long missing character came back to the grand scene who was missing for so long. Rebirth's first trade is The Flash Vol. 1: Lightning Strikes Twice

So if you are interested in Barry (overall) start with The Flash: Rebirth and move onward to Flashpont , but you can just start with The Flash, Vol. 1: Move Forward or DC Rebirth and The Flash Vol. 1: Lightning Strikes Twice , then read everything up to today. (currently there is a Flash event called Flash War coming out)

(there is an omnibus on sale at the moment (a collection of multiple trades) called The Flash By Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato Omnibus that collects the first 4 trades of the New 52 era.

> And one girl didn't say (very shy)

I really hope this girl isn't shy like me because otherwise it means she's not comfortable enough with her environment and the people in it, so she's afraid of saying something that'd make her stick out from the rest.

Anyways, with Ben 10 you've got the TV-series which I watched as a kid. It's very much kid-friendly. It's had several takes though. This is the original show. I'd recommend "sending" the dvds or blurays (if there are any) of that show since the comics are basically straight adaptations, it seems.

If they don't have a DVD-player, here's the amazon link to the different comic-book volumes called Ben 10 Classics

Here's a bunch of other variations of the original show in release order:

  • Ben 10: Alien Force
  • Ben 10: Ultimate Alien
  • Ben 10: Omniverse

As for Marvel Comics, they can be very mature (PG-rated). I think it would be very hard to find some appropriate for 9-12 year olds. Just saying, you might want to scroll through the pages of those comics beforehand. DC Comics seem to have more child-appropriate titles. The recent Flash run by Manapul and Buccellato could be appropriate for kids their age.

To summarize: you can't go wrong with Ben 10, it runs on Cartoon Network. However, DC and Marvel can have some pretty intense and mature motifs/themes.

Sadly, I can't speak for DC Rebirth. I haven't read any of it. I can say that I loved the New52.
