The command `comment-dwim' might do what you want, but note that its
dwimmish behavior depends on `transient-mark-mode' being enabled.

,----[ C-h f comment-dwim RET ]
| comment-dwim is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `newcomment'.
| (comment-dwim ARG)
| Call the comment command you want (Do What I Mean).
| If the region is active and `transient-mark-mode' is on, call
|   `comment-region' (unless it only consists of comments, in which
|   case it calls `uncomment-region').
| Else, if the current line is empty, insert a comment and indent it.
| Else if a prefix ARG is specified, call `comment-kill'.
| Else, call `comment-indent'.
