The guys who immediately come to mind aren't fathers in the biological sense.
Uncle Ben. Only seen in a few pages of one comic but probably the most influential father figure in comics.
I'm having a hard time thinking of other good fathers besides those that have been mentioned. But there are plenty of bad ones.
Dr. Doom. I know his son was actually his clone around FF 195-200, but he was first presented as Doom's son when I read these issues as an 8 year old and the impact of Doom killing his son has stuck with me as a 47 year old. Add to this the way he used and abused Kristoff, his "adopted" son, and you get a pretty bad dad.
Norman Osborn. Marvel's template for the neglectful, abusive father. I think he might have used the word "sniveling" more than anyone else.
Jonathan Drew. Brings Jessica Spider-Woman Drew to Wundagore where she exposed to radiation, injected with an experimental serum and then left her with his lab partner. Nice.
Off topic: Nathaniel Richards. I just hate him and not in the "love-to-hate" way.
