Diplomatic immunity

Ambassadors, official representatives, and heads of state[1] of a country are sometimes granted with immunity while visiting other countries.

In some occasions, armed forces related diplomacy and leaders' protection, such as Atlantean Royal Guard members Janus and Amir, were covered by the diplomatic immunity.[2]

Doctor Doom, as ruler of Latveria, often benefits of such immunity (on Earth-616 and in other realities),[3] and sometimes from the protection of heroes and security agencies to enforce that status.[4][5]

Diplomatic immunity has also applied to extra-terrestrial representatives such as Ord.[6]

Diplomatic immunity also applies to embassies, considered their home nation's sovereign soil. Examples includes Wakandan[7] and Latverian[8] embassies in New York City.

Diplomatic immunity doesn't apply in every country, and can be granted to non-representative individuals, such as Ian Quinn a wealthy mining philanthropist and the owner of Quinn Worldwide which had diplomatic immunity in Malta.[9]

As recognised ruler of the country Canaan, Moses Magnum had diplomatic immunity,[10] but he dared not travel to United States soil in person, lest he could be arrested there.[11]
