Max Damage was part of the government-sponsored team known as Brute Force, a group whose roster consisted entirely of super-strong behemoths. The heroes would be sent on suicide missions by the government as their confidence often meant that they would be the only volunteers for such missions.

Brute Force often found themselves out of work but would rush into action whenever the opportunity presented itself. When the Special Operations Strikeforce were formed, Brute Force began to lose out on many jobs that they would have previously been offered. They jumped at the opportunity to a mission on Radiation Island that left the team decimated.

Max Damage held open auditions to recruit a new roster but had to wade through numerous lame would-be heroes before he could form a team. The new Brute Force were hired by the government to take part in their invasion of Godworld, proving their worth so that they could receive future jobs.

When the S.O.S. suffered a huge loss in members, Brute Force was inducted into the larger team. Max Damage struck up a friendship there with Rapture and took part in the search for Malcolm Dragon when he fled the S.O.S.’s complex headquarters. He suffered an excruciating injury when Malcolm punched the hero right in the testicles.

Some time later, Max Damage and the original Brute Force were reunited and took part in a raid on the Vicious Circle’s mansion home. Major Battle and Moe Muscle were gunned down early on in the conflict, causing Max Damage to flee for his life. He later participated in another superhero gathering when SuperPatriot led many of his peers against the Billy Berman version of Mighty Man.

When Weed and Major Disaster attack the Jerry Rivers show, Max Damage shows up to help stop them. He accidentally causes the death of Major Disaster causing Weed to flee. Max then decides it is time to create a new Brute Force. He soon creates a new Brute Force and the teams is able to beat Bulkhead
