The Metallo story seems like it was written by Stan Lee simply because he calls the suit a "hulk." Stan seemed to love that word hulk. (Something something Inigo Montoya something what you think it means).

Reading about Metallo I wondered if the story was the inspiration for Iron Man. There's an even closer resemblance to the Banner's robot story from TALES TO ASTONISH #60-#61. In both tales a no-good gets into the suit by deception and decides to remain in it. (The spy from the Hulk tale gets trapped in it, but doesn't mind.) I think this is an indication the idea for the Hulk story came from Lee rather than Ditko.
