Brute Force is a short lived (4 issues, August-November, 1990) MarvelComics creation, originally by Charles Viola, written by [[Comicbook/TheTransformers Simon Furman,]] and illustrated by Jose Delbo. It stars a team of animal cyborgs known as "Brute Force", later opposed by another team of cyborg animals known as "Heavy Metal". It existed as a shameless attempt [[MerchandiseDriven to sell toys]] (without a toyline, Marvel was allegedly expecting toy companies to buy the toy rights). Nowadays best known for WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall's reviews of the whole series.

* MerchandiseDriven: An interesting example as the series was purportedly created by Marvel with the hopes that toy companies would jump on board and create toys of the characteres, but to no avail. WordOfGod from series editor Bob Budiansky was that Marvel's then-Editor-In-Chief Tom [=DeFalco=] was the main motivator for the series.

* TookALevelInBadAss: In the Deadpool crossover Slipstream, now called Dr. Echo, was in charge of upgrading the team's armor. He explicitly compared it to Iron Man's Extremis upgrade, but without the "bugs and limitations" that Tony kept in his version.

* HowDoIShotWeb: It turns out that if you slap power armor onto random animals and give them incredibly deadly weapons of war, there ''might'' be some teething issues.

to:

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: The CEO of Water World manages two in as many pages: He hoists Deadpool and Brute Force by bringing out Tatanka-Tank, a Killer Whale made of the same technology that Brute Force uses, and which is capable of taking out the whole team. This technology wouldn't have been acquired if Brute Force hadn't attacked Water World in the first place, and if Deadpool hadn't cut off Dr. Echo's robot arms, which were used to reverse-engineer the technology. On the other hand, the CEO is immediately killed by Tatanka-Tank.
* HowDoIShotWeb: It turns out that if you slap power armor onto random animals and give them incredibly deadly weapons of war, there ''might'' be some teething issues. Brute Force, in their first outing, nearly causes as much destruction as the mercenaries they're trying to ''stop,'' and the various members fight among themselves more often than they do their foes (to the point where Soar and Lionheart ''knock themselves out'' while trying to attack Deadpool). Heavy Metal... fails nearly every single mission they are assigned to, usually catastrophically. Tatanka-Tank, being a heavily abused killer whale, ''immediately'' turns on his boss, killing him in seconds.

** Deadpool's plan to take out Lionheart is to have him chase after a laser pointer. The sad part is that this works perfectly.
