Brute Force is a short lived (4 issues) MarvelComics creation. It stars a team of animal cyborgs known as "Brute Force", latter 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.

The book was meant to be part of Marvel's StarComics line of kid's comics, going as far as having ads for that line in the issues instead of the mainline Marvel books.

The team is [[http://marvel.com/news/comics/2014/6/9/22646/brute_force_returns_in_deadpool_bi-annual slated to make a return]] in the ''{{Deadpool}} Bi-Annual'', going up against Deadpool.

Not to be confused with ''ComicBook/{{We3}}'' or the {{Xbox}} [[VideoGame/BruteForce game]] or the arcade game with the same name.

!! ''Brute Force'' has examples of:
* AnimalStereotypes: Heavy Metal is made up of mostly "evil" animals: a Shark, a Rhino, an Octopus, a vulture and a [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers Gorilla]].
* AntiHero: The lion. ''There's a time for lambs and there's a time for lions''.
* BadassNormal: Dr. Pierce takes out 2 security guards off-screen on his own.
* BerserkButton: Lionheart doesn't like water. At all.
* CarFu: As well as taking out a mercenary by driving a jeep into him.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive
* ForTheEvulz: There's no real logical reason for the villain to be evil. He just is.
* GreenAesop
* HowDoIShotWeb
* KidAppealCharacter: The kangaroo.
* MegaCorp: Multicorp employs its own mercenary outfit and owns its own farms.
* 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.
* PowerArmor: It's what gives the animals their human-level intelligence, speech, and various powers and weapons.
* RuleOfCool: Who needs logic when you can have ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome ROBO-BEAR VERSUS CYBER-GORILLA?]]''
* TotallyRadical: The kangaroo talks like this.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: The (working) animal augmentation program appears to be public knowledge, but [[AnimalWrongsGroup the]] [[UsefulNotes/YanksWithTanks people]] you think would care don't seem to care.
* UpliftedAnimal
* WeaponizedAnimal
* WellIntentionedExtremist: The main villain from the third issue is a rather stupid example; he wants to create lifeforms that thrive on pollution, but [[AssimilationPlot his plans]] would most likely end up on the rest of the earth nuking him.
* WesternTerrorists: Of the Eco-terroist variety.
* YouFailLogicForever: Multicorp preforms armed robberies on its own child companies because... uh... [[ForTheEvulz they're evil?]]
