The Hulkbuster Armor

Officially called the Hulkbuster Armor (Modular Add-on) Iron Man Armor Model 14, the armor made its first appearance in Iron Man #304 (May 1994).  It was created by Tony Stark to face off against the Hulk, who was angered at the production of Gamma bombs by Stane International, a company formed by Obidiah Stane when he took over Stark International.

Later, both Hulk and Tony were able to settle their differences.  Together, they dismantled Stane International’s plant.
