An officially licensed title could be good.
Entry Level Title: Marvel Ultimate Alliance, X- Men: Legends
Ignore the fact that the majority of officially licensed titles are consistently horrible cash grabs. Name recognition goes a long way when it comes to easing non-gamers into the waters of console gaming. Titles like Marvel Ultimate Alliance , X-Men Legends, Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure offer an easy pick up and play approach to visually familiar characters. The RPG elements of Marvel Ultimate Alliance and X-Men Legends may be off-putting to some, but they're easily ignored using auto-equip settings. Whos doesn't want to play a video game where you get to be Storm, Batman, or Wolverine? Nobody.
