But ended up loving.
For me it was the Fantastic Four and Namor. My first exposure to the FF was the really mediocre movies in the 2000's and thought they were lame but recently I've been reading FF comics from the very beginning and they might be my second favorite team (first being the X-Men.) With Namor I first saw him when my grandma bought me a book on the history of Marvel. I immediately thought he was an Aquaman rip-off not knowing he debuted before Aquaman. But ever since I started reading him he's become one of my favorite characters. I not as knowledgeable on Marvel or DC as many of the users here so I interested on you guys and gals think.

Captain America. Never really read many of the comics, because the ones I did read I didn't care for at all, but Chris Evans' portrayal is easily my favourite comic book character ever committed to screen.
Moon Knight. Dude just screamed “knock off Batman”, and welp here we are. Granted it helps that he’s had some damn good writers and artists behind him.
That is who I was gonna say.
The 2 volumes of Marvel Essentials Moon Knight are two of my favorite trades to re-read. I saw him in I think Marvel Team Up and thought he was just a second rate Batman. Then read the Monech/Bill Skienkevitcz run and those two really made Moon Knight into his own character. In ways it is like how Denny O'Neil took Green Arrow from being Batman with a bow to being a fully fleshed out character.

I had an "eh" opinion on Rocket Raccoon and Black Panther just based on their comics I read over the years. The Guardians films and Civil War won me over to their side. The MCU did a great job making them more sympathetic.

I never thought I'd like Aquaman as much as I do. god bless Batman: Brave and the Bold.
Incredible Hercules and Ms. Marvel stand out as two characters/books I thought would be kinda lame, last 12 issues or so and then be cancelled and I am so happy to be wrong on both those assessments.
I'd also completely written off Shatterstar as the single lamest and most comically dated of Marvel's 90s anti-hero lineup. and then Peter David got his hands on the guy. bonus points for exposing Rob Liefeld as a biphobic man-baby.
That's a good answer. I don't read f*** all for Marvel anymore, so can't really vouch for Kamala, Miles, Riri (I think that's Iron Hearts name?) or any of Marvel's newer characters, but I can definitely say I really enjoy the new Green Lanterns.
Hated the idea of Damien Wayne, and wasn't reading at the time but REALLY hated when I heard he was the new Robin, but since getting back into regular reading last year he's quickly become one of my favourites. I love how he plays off Superboy and the Teen Titans.

oh yeah Damian Wayne is another one. one of Grant Morrison's few misfires over the years. he gave us a whiny, spoiled Cousin Oliver who likes killing people, and constantly waffled about whether we were supposed to like him or not. it got even worse when he displaced Tim Drake as Robin. thank god Peter Tomasi came in and completely revised him to be a hilarious, adorable parody of his dad.
