I just got a 2242 HUB to control several X10 lights and one Insteon 6 button keypad wall switch. I'm using the Android Insteon HUB App. I can control the individual X10 devices, but is there anyway to be able to turns several of them off at once?

Not directly because X10 modules cannot be members of a scene. Insteon devices can which is one of the many benefits of Insteon that's lacking in X10.

You can do that, however, using Alexa groups, but the Insteon app can't control Alexa groups.

OTOH, if you always want the X10 Modules to turn on and off concurrently and you don't need individual control. then some X10 devices allow that. Simply set them all to the same house/unit code.
