I don't think that Ultimate Spider-Man is an actual example. First, it is just implied, and in a throwaway joke. Second, even what is implied is that he tried not that he actually did it. And the age issue is neither mentioned nor implied, it's just a fridge horror thing, not an actual description of the actual content of the book.

In the "Revenge Of The Nerds" example should it really link to "Good People Have Good Sex"? After all, Lewis raped the woman. How good is he?

"Mystique also took pictures and mailed them to Wolverine's current girlfriend, because again, Raven is a jerk. "

This is confusing. Who is Raven?

Raven Darkholme is Mystique's real name.

By the looks of it, this trope only describes itself as being about characters impersonating as someone else in the cast. I do believe it should be more comprehensive, it should encompass the entire spectrum of deception - "Alice pretends to be X" instead of "Alice pretends to be Bob"

Examples would be, "Alice pretends to be a doctor to fraudulently coquette Bob into a one night stand". If I posted this in the wrong section, note away.

No, it really does have the narrower meaning. Well-known in literary criticism in that sense, anyhow.

I recall this existing in egyption mythology and a person using this trope to become a ruler.

Does this trope just cover sex? Or does it also cover the use of impersonation for kissing, voyeurism, heavy petting, etc?

Though it seems to be primarily about sexual intercourse, I think sexual activities of various natures could apply.
