Haha, I like the characters/cartoons/movies, but the comics just come off as unbearably cheesy to me.
(At least the older ones. I haven't looked at a comic in IDK how long, lol)
If you find the right type, im surfe theres some modern works you would enjoy. Its all about finding the books that fit your taste. Theres a lot of non-cheesy stuff out there.. I prefer dark content myself.
Most comics now are all grimdark anyways after Frank Miller. Marvel is trying to move back into a more innocent age with its Heroic Age thing but I doubt it will last. The comics are less cheesy than the movies imo. They don't have to cater to the average consumer who knows nothing about the mythology.
