Dr. Brainard was introduced during Issue #12 of the first and only volume of Strykeforce series. He was hired by Randall Garr to destroy Strykeforce after Stryker humiliated and blackmailed Garr to pay him for a crooked job he set Stryker and his team on. Brainard then sent a holographic image of Dominique Beaner--Stryker's accountant, to Stryker showing her as Brainard's prisoner.
Stryker and his team went to rescue her but were neutralized by Brainard's own team known as the Industrial Accidents. Brainard then took Stryker into custody, dismantling him as painfully as deliberately possible. Brainard and his assistant Doris were then attacked by a party consisting of Sh'rrrnn--an alien, and one of Brainard's previous experimental operatives simply named Specimen Q. During the encounter, Sh'rrrnn neutralized Brainard after he threw an axe at her and returned fire, sending the axe straight into his brain dome. Brainard and Doris soon recovered from the attack and Brainard ordered his Industrial Accidents to follow the intruders aboard their aircraft called "The Wingless Ding".
Brainard was next seen in the Savage Dragon/Destroyer Duck one-shot. It was revealed that Specimen Q was really Destroyer Duck all along. To get revenge on Brainard for imprisoning him in a suit of armor for years, Destroyer Duck and Savage Dragon battled a new Industrial Accidents team assembled by Brainard and Doris. After the battle is over, Brainard and Doris are apparently shot and killed by a mysterious figure called Nuggo the Gnome.
