I do, and this should be clear by my normal taste in all things.
Except Doom just sucks. He's treated too seriously for his style of character to really be enjoyable to me. I enjoy Doom when he's being defeated because it's always in a moment of "Pride cometh before the fall." Doom's only real fault is his pride. Which wouldn't be a problem. Magneto is extremely proud. Red Skull is proud. Thanos is proud. Most big name villains are prideful. It kind of comes with the territory. Except basically every villain also has some kind of struggle. They have a motivation. Doom's motivation is "Doom is Right" and I find that boring.
Magneto gets humanized through his past trauma.
Thanos isn't meant to be humanized because he's meant to be larger than life.
Red Skull isn't meant to be humanized because he's a literal nazi.
Doom, as a villain, just... exists. He's evil because of pride. He's evil because he's right. Writers frequently go out of their way to show that if we all just got out of the way Doom would be the greatest their is. He's not a mustache twirling villain that would fit the cartoony kitsch. He's basically Ozymandias from Watchmen. Except where Ozymandias succeeded Doom doesn't.
(Off topic, but I also hate Watchmen so... -shrug-)

Don't you guys find fun in cartoony kitsch now and then?
Yeah I do but I think it’s not vogue lol
Which is why villains like Mojo can at times be interesting
Mojo is a villain I hate to see, but DAMN is he something when he shows up. If Doom did more scene chewing when he showed up I'd probably enjoy him more.
