Ben is already dead coming into the MCU Peter's version. Why do it again? Yes May dies in the comics but Pete is a bit older by then.
And yet, Peter is defined by tragedy and loss. Always has been. So if you want a full on reset back to comic sensibility I suppose you have to strip him of all the MCU niceties. Friends gone, check. Father figure gone, check. Family gone, check. Smmart but broke? Check. Sense of hope against hope? Check, check, check. I'm intrigued to see how it goes from here.
I suppose starting him out in the MCU younger makes more sense now. He can have the MCU trappings in his youth, which wasn't really explored much, but by time he's come of age he's back to where most people know Peter Parker to be.
