(Incredible Hulk I#5/1 (fb) - BTS) - Under unknown circumstances, U.S. soldiers had the Hulk caught by the force of the Neuron-Magnet, but the jade giant's superhuman strength enabled him to smash the magnet just when the soldiers thought they had him -- these events were filmed by a cameraman.

Okay, not much of a profile... but it only appeared in this one panel.

I'd speculate that maybe the Neuron-Magnet was built by Stark Industries (which was working on a lot of government contracts at the time).
