"So would this be considered rape?"Not by any legal standard.
" It is considered theft and malpractice. "Theft only in some jurisdictions. Legislatures have been reticent to call genetic material, body parts, and the like "property" for a series of traditional fears such as stalling medical research, legitimizing markets in organs, etc. More progressive jurisdictions may criminalize it and call it theft, but the underlying rational is nearly always privacy or consent (as opposed to property law).
I was being serious BTW, sorta. Men have no rights and are considered the enemies of the state in Thundra's
timeline. Thundra was acting under orders from her government directly during a time of war, and can't be held

For example, if a US citizen was attacked abroad in a government sanctioned attack but by a government unrecognized by the US and both the victim and the perpetrator came back to the US... the US would exercise its jurisdiction over the perpetrator even if the perp was justified under their own government's law.
" @Mainline: I don't think they would risk that either way.I'm not saying they would pursue the case or would win, I'm saying that the laws of Thundra's home would not be a defense or justification. The other things you list are practical reasons not to pursue it, but as I already stated, the alleged crime fails to meet the definition of rape anyways so that legal avenue is closed to begin with and the court would not extend jurisdiction over such a matter in a civil-only case.
"He was not raped because raped is force sex. But regardless of what happen he was still violated.
The tricky bit here would not so much be the location but the time issue, but there's literally a She-Hulk precedent on this which addresses the issue of time-travel causation crime... so, if it was a crime in Hulk's time/jurisdiction, they could hold Thundra accountable legally (in practice is another story).
