Brute Force is a short lived (4 issues, August-November, 1990) Marvel Comics creation, originally by Charles Viola, written by 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 to sell toys (without a toyline, Marvel was allegedly expecting toy companies to buy the toy rights from them).
The book was meant to be part of Marvel’s Star Comics line of kid’s comics, going as far as having ads for that line in the issues instead of the mainline Marvel books.
