The Quintronic Man is a robot created by Stark International and is utilized by the New York City Police to take down the Hulk. The robot was massive and controlled by five individuals inside protect-pods located on the head, both shoulders and both legs. Each individual pilot inside a protect-pod controlled a particular limb and worked as one unit. The Quintronic Man was employed when the Hulk just recently defeated the Constrictor.
A battle ensued between the Hulk and the Quintronic Man. The Hulk was eventually subdued when he was sprayed by the somna-gas tanks. The Hulk was detained in an armor vehicle to be transported. The Hulk managed to escape the armored vehicle and engaged the Quintronic Man again. The Hulk managed to damage the protect-pods when he hit the robot with a powerful punch. The punch damaged the protect-pods preventing the seal to completely close. The Quintronic Man was about to spray the Hulk again with the somna-gas when the gamma giant threw a giant slab into the robot's chest. The slab blocked the gas tanks and somna-gas was released into the protect-pods rendering the occupants unconscious.
The Quintronic Man was created by Len Wein and Sal Buscema in 1977 and first appeared in The Incredible Hulk # 213.
