Ugh I might not be at home for this, hopefully people record the good stuff.
When Avengers came out, everyone made all kinds of comics and posts about Steve adjusting to modern life.
I don’t see a single fucking post about Peter Quill coming to Earth and being blown away. This dude lives in a spaceship and travels the galaxy and the last time he was on Earth, all phones could do was call each other, if that’s not worth an MSPaint comic then I don’t know what is.
Well in the cosmics he gives so much shit about Earth or earthlings in general one time he called the Fantastic Four “Fabulous Four” and even mentions it that he always mixes up all the Earth heroes. Of course his movie portrayal could be very different from this, but I really like this aspect of his character, an earthling who feels like an outcast on his own planet, and finds his true home amongst the stars. Whatever, I’m just gushing.
To be fair most of those Steve fics were kind of bad, especially since it involved him putting bread on dvd players and being so gosh darn confused about electric escalators (despite the fact that electric escalators existed during Steve’s time and who would be confused as to how to use electric escalators?).
I think for Peter all the earth stuff would be primitive. Coming back After being in space for so long, he would be confused as to how to use things the same way people today would be confused about using a telegraph machine, a phonograph, an old early 1900’s car etc….
I think Peter would be impressed as to how Earth advanced but at the end of the day nothing would be impressive to him. He was in space and he mingled with aliens and civilizations that were far more technologically advanced than we are. So anything on earth would probably prompt him to think “Oh yeah that’s great you guys came along way, wow but I have seen better”
That coupled with the fact that he probably has so much nostalgia about his life on earth that that he probably won’t like how different it is today than it was in the 80’s/early 90’s. My guess he would end being like “Yeah OK this is not my home anymore, I have a family right now with the Guardians, back to space for me!”
As for Comic!Peter I think at worst he disliked Earth (his origin involved him being an outcast who wanted to GTFO of that planet and into space) and at best he was neutral about it. He would protect the Earth if a bad guy were to try to cause problems there but he would not put that planet above any other planet in case of an universal threat.
