I don't think that simply being exited about something like this would qualify in any way as disbelieve in the the One True God.

That's good.  I remember Marvel comics used to at least make a provision for God in their universe.  Most of the "gods" were really an unexplained alien lifeform and the most advanced lifeforms referred to God as "the Creator" or "The One Above All."  They must have had some people with a degree of conscience.

I guess they were in part a corruption of the original revelation to Adam and in other respects sheer demonical worship.

From what I've been taught, The True God was known to Adam and Eve.  But due to their sin of disobedience, this knowledge of the True God was veiled in the hearts of their descendants.   And thus the sin of idolatry was practiced and indulged in.  God chose the Hebrews as the Chosen People because they were the closest of the human race to know the True God and through them,  redemption from the sin of Adam would manifest itself in themoncler Person of Jesus Christ.

It makes sense, I mean that idea, to make the so called "gods" on comics and TV series as semi-god in other words they have earthly urges as well as can be killed and replace with other semi-gods just like in the show Hercules, I don't know if you remember.
