No Blue Devil, aside from one random issue in my boxes.

It was another one of those "Random Earthlings gain super powers and are treated by like the Chosen Ones, but then in two years are more than likely killed." I want to say red aliens were involved.
I'll say you're thinking of "Millennium", which was indeed terrible. Even when it was coming out, I thought it was terrible. It involved aliens, the Manhunters (red aliens), the Guardians of the Universe, the Amazonians, Harbinger, then random people getting powers. Two notable ones were "Pieface" from Green Lantern and the Floronic Man. They all had weird powers and were spun-off into "The New Guardians", which didn't last long.
The Manhunters thing seemed like a big retcon or shake-up...as established characters suddenly revealed they were Manhunters all along. They'd rip off a mask and say: "No man escapes the Manhunters"! I think Lana Lang was one, along with the first Rocket Red in the JLI.
All the Manhunter reveals and the "New Guardians" were forgotten fairly quickly and/or never mentioned again. The solo "Manhunter" title with Mark Shaw in the title role was also indirectly spun out of it. I think DC said something like: "there is now only ONE Manhunter....read his adventures monthly!"
I haven't read "Invasion" in forever (maybe since it first came out), but it seemed like a Big Deal to me because they snagged Todd McFarlane for it. In the midst of his ASM run. I think the story was all the random DC alien races teaming up and simply invading Earth. Captain Atom got to lead all the united superheroes against them. The "MetaGene Bomb" went off, which was another gimmick to whip up new characters.
"L.E.G.I.O.N" was spun-off from "Invasion"-- I remember I followed that title until mid-1990 or so.
Manga Kahn was too silly for me. He was basically a satire of Galactus, yet with fashion. Even add in the Scarlet Skiier. He was funny, but he seemed to linger in the book for way too long. I did absolutely LOVE The Injustice League, though. The Mighty Bruce!
