I prefer the lenses in the comics, but simply because art can be subtly morphed to give those eyes various ranges of emotion without any need of them. Live action sadly isn't mutable like that.
Spider-man and Iron Man are the worst offenders. Both in the comics and cartoons their eyes made of steel and fabric can move like real eyes and brows to convey emotion. Iron Man has found a nice solution in live action, Spidey hasn't, which is why they always have to contrive a reason to show of the face of the actor.
Alan Moore on comics:
They've lost a lot of their original innocence, and they can't get that back. And, they're stuck, it seems, in this kind of depressive ghetto of grimness and psychosis. I'm not too proud of being the author of that regrettable trend.
