Had an OTB incident which bent my right brake lever.

Has anyone had success bending it back using a vice with a metal pipe or metal collar over it as leverage?

Don't fancy forking out $55 for new brake unit or a ridiculous $44 just for the lever.

Yeah I've done it. Used 2 adjustable wrenches. One on the end of the lever. The other to keep the inside of the lever from twisting the pivots under pressure. Good as new.
