I've read the rule book, got the cheat sheet and watched some people play online, but while Marvel Heroic Roleplay seems easy enough, I still don't feel like I "get it". Where is a good place to play or learn, particularly online? I've looked on roll20.net but didn't find the game listed (supposedly because it isn't grid based).

There are several VOIP games running. Some are actively recruiting on the Margaret Weiss Productions forums (http://www.margaretweis.com/forum/index.php), and on RPG Geek (http://rpggeek.com), as well as the GooglePlus MHR community (https://plus.google.com/communities/113114436417291762579).
In the case of RPG Geek, the people I've seen looking for players are posting in geeklists, especially the 2014 RPG Challenge: Play 5 Games New to You list.
Also, since MHR is Cortex Plus, much of the mechanics are shared with Leverage, Smallville, Firefly, and Dragon Brigade. Looking at those can shed light on the fuzzier areas of MHR.
Further still, Cam Banks, the designer, is active in the G+, RPG Geek, and MWP forums, and often helps people grasp it. He's VERY accessible online, and seems to be a genuinely nice guy. He's proud of MHR. Just don't ask about why it was cancelled.
You might want to check out the communities on Google Plus. For awhile I know one of my friends ran "Marvel Mondays" - he'd run an online hangout (video chat) session for about 2 hours every Monday with a good focus on drop in games. The nice thing is that G+ Hangouts has solid dice roller options. Start asking around and I bet you'd be able to find someone willing to run a game or play in one.
My answer is largely copied from a D&D specific answer here: I have read the D&D PHB but am still having trouble grasping some of the basics, how can I learn more? because I am reading between the lines and assuming some of this is that you're new to RPGs in general, not just Marvel, right?
When you're just getting started, it is certainly possible to figure out the game from the books and just start running it for your friends. That's how I and others learned to game "back in the day." But there are certainly things that can help.
