I'm having a difficult time holding on to this version of Peter while trying to process all the crap he has been through. I really want to find mental peace with this, but the fact that Peter has been Spider-Man for so little time and has had his reality bent out of shape to such an extent, well, it's sort of ****ing with my perception of the character.

I'm hoping I can get this all sorted out mentally.
I like cosmic mind-bending storytelling, so why does it throw such a wrench in my mind, when it comes to Spidey? Maybe because I expect him to be more relatable? At least early on in his "career"? Perhaps, I am just having trouble trying to frame his story or character arc.
Part of me realizes I should be excited to get something fresh, that I wouldn't have expected, but I also wonder if it's stretching my stagnated and tired (?) idea of what Spider-Man should be

I can't really pinpoint why I am hung up on it, but does anyone else share these feelings? Regardless, I've got so much love for this version of Spider-Man.

I completely understand and empathize with you. Characters need to be grounded some more than others. Spider-man is not really a character who deals with such cosmic/sci-fi stories. I have felt like this with the TMNT comic in the past especially recently with the over-arching pantheon storyline. Or also TMNT 2K3 season 5 with the Ninja Tribunal. Sometimes characters feel out of place within their own stories.

Sure he has. "Secret Wars" comes to mind right away, how he gets the Venom symbiote to begin with.

Nonsense. One of the biggest things I like about the TMNT is their ability to transcend genres. i.e., a bit of urban ninja stuff over here, some sorcery stuff over there, a time travel story, an adventure in space, etc.. All of it works.

To me, the Turtles in space arc in Mirage Vol 1 was probably my favorite part of the series

I think what he meant was that it's not the setting per se, but more the SCOPE.

TMNT don't defend the universe or the galaxy or all of humanity. They just get caught up in $hit, whether it's a ninja clan blood feud, or two governments going to war in space, or palling around with a fugitive android, or some mystic $hit, or whatever.

Send the TMNT to space? Absolutely. Send the TMNT to space to fight Thanos or Galactus? That's more than likely going too far. I think it is, at any rate.

They're not superheroes.

Yeah, I was wrestling with both of their points, but I think you nailed it.

But for Spider-Man, I don't know. I think he fits well into all types of stories, but I think I am stuck on the idea that his early years should be cemented down with more grounded stories. Trying to shake that limited view of the character from my mind though.

True, but this is gonna be an interesting take to see how he reacts back to being safe on Earth after being stuck in space for a while. It's the kind of comic books madness Toby and Andrew didn't get to relate with.
