I hate that this genre is dominant.

A friend who is in his mid 40s likes 'em and recommended Deadpool.

No go.

Am I lost?  Does anyone over fifty like these?

In our 60s here.  I scoffed at them for a long time, but then watched Dr Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy, and was hooked.  My partner still has to tell me who a lot of the characters are and how they're related because he read the comics.

Most shows with super villains leave me wondering why they just randomly want to destroy humans, but the Infinity War/Endgame movies gave a reason.  Thanos was convinced his evil was for the greater good, and plenty of people might even agree with him, in theory.  I liked knowing his motivation wasn't simply that he hated humankind for some obscure reason or no reason at all.
