Yes. I believe a rape will take place in the pages of Superior Spider-Man.
No. I don't believe a rape will take place in the pages of Superior Spider-Man.
I believe rape already occurred in Amazing Spider-Man 700: Doc Ock/Peter kissed MJ.
Ive seen TV shows, movies & comics where kisses happen due to mistaken identities & its not rape.

Don't ever take a fence down until you know the reason why it was put up.--G.K. Chesterton
You would hope so, but the fact is it is Marvel after all, and going by what they've done in the past they might not even care.
It appears that Marvel doesn't want Peter and Mary Jane to be a couple despite the fact that a lot of fans want them to be.
Can we really put it past Marvel to do something like this as a final nail in the coffin to prevent them from ever being a couple again should Peter end up returning as some people have already stated in this thread?
Heck, I find it even impossibe for Peter and Mary Jane to remain close friends if Doc Ock and her get sexually involved with each other and she later learns the truth.

Is it me, or do Mj and Pete look kinda...hard in the face? Weird.
She is surprised there, but the true test is what happens in the issue. But based on past work I'm not certain she'll pull back.
I don't think she's suspicious of anything more severe than him having some emotional troubles. Consider the scene later on when she gave him the long-winded I love you speech and then made out with him. If she was suspicious of his behavior, that would be the time to question him.
That said, it's not impossible. One theory of how things will get back to normal would be Mary Jane figuring it all out. But I don't think that's the most likely explanation given the evidence we have at the moment.
Adding another layer to the problem is the fact that we've been outright told that Spider-Man and Mary Jane Watson will be getting back together. Thirty....Fifty years ago, that might not have had the sexual implications, but in the modern world, that's generally what it means. Of course, that could be a lie or misdirection, or it could simply be referring to the stuff we've already seen. But it's out there, regardless, making people doubt.
Simply put, yes, it would be a stupid decision. That seems to be the way things work anymore though.

There is a good chance resident Mary Sue Carlie will figure it out.
But I think one problem with this discussion is the expectation that everyone would agree that something that isn't legally classified as rape in New York state is an example of that crime, and therefore off-limits in a Spider-Man comic. It's too restrictive in this type of series when readers start suggesting that something that isn't technically illegal in the state, and that can't happen in the real world in exactly the same way is a taboo that shouldn't even be hinted at.
What Would Spidey Do?
Because legality is a dumb way to decide morality. Damn near useless really. I mean racism isn't illegal, but I don't think having Peter going around calling Arabs towel heads (or insert fictional race here) is a very good idea.
Another example is pot. Its illegal in a lot of places, but I don't care if its discussed in any book.
