If you compare the startup code needed it is clear where at least a major part of this time comes from. Micropython has close to no startup code actually (it just initializes some dictionaries, stores arguments etc). Something like Python3 on the other hand: oh my. Recently I was stepping through pretty much all of it in the debugger to figure out a problem, day afterwards I had a cramp in my finger from hitting the 'Step' button too much :P
