Synopsis for "The S-Men"
The X-Men decide to take some time off and visit a trendy coffee shop in a collegiate community. While there, they watch a televised news broadcast of the X-Men fighting a bunch of escaped giant monsters – which is naturally impossible, since they are the X-Men.
This second group of X-Men is actually an espionage team of shape-shifting alien Skrulls. They were sent to Earth to evaluate the planet's super-powered community and make a threat assessment. The Skrull Praetor instructs them to kill the X-Men in order to cut down on the mutant populace.
The real X-Men meanwhile, switch into their costumed identities to round up the last of the remaining super-monsters. During the battle, a giant insectoid creature renders them unconscious with a ray beam from its antennae. The Skrulls have a change of heart, and decide that they do not truly wish to harm these mutants. Instead, they save the X-Men's lives by tackling the creature on their own.
After the battle, the Skrulls return to the Skrull Empire where they are admonished for defying orders. They don't really care though, as they have come to really enjoy living the life of an X-Man.
