Synopsis:
In deep space, a group of interstellar conquerors, comprised of myriad species and calling themselves the Conquest, make plans against their newest objective: Earth. Meanwhile in Australia, Wolverine notices the low morale among the men in camp. Taking a cue from Storm's all-ladies trip to LA, Wolverine suggests a trip with the guys to town. Shortly after arriving in Sydney, Wolverine's group, comprised of Colossus, Longshot, Havok and himself, witness the arrival of the invading Conquest. The reactions of the citizens of Sydney confuse the Conquest causing their leadership to decide to cut their losses and activate a bomb of unimaginable devastation. A half-inebriated Havok destroys the command ship before the bomb is activated, saving the day and stranding the strike force members of Conquest. Meanwhile, in the highlands of Kentucky, Tessa of the Hellfire Club is shown a devastated installation that once imprisoned the now free Donald Pierce, the former White King.

Notes:
This issue was obviously a tongue and cheek story with several sci-fi character cameos, especially Star Wars (in one panel on page 2, an alien taunts the reader "Bet you can't name everybody here!"). Later, on page 24, we get a peek at the Daily Planet. It isn't actually named (and neither are the characters), but you will get a glimpse of Clark Kent, Perry White and Jimmy Olsen.

Perhaps the funniest bit was the aliens' secret weapon: the Jean Bomb! "It possesses the power to fatally disrupt any and all relationships." They go on to say that "her mere presence will dissolve the most loving bonds, prompt brother to slay brother and boon companions to tear themselves apart."
