why the inverted gullwing on the stark corporat jet?

The Stark corporate jet had inverted gull wings..are they real

In reality several planes over time have used inverted gull wings.

These work like dihedral to some degree to improve stability, but more importantly they reduce the effects of turbulence at the wing / fuselage juncture, sometimes to the point where fairings aren't absolutely needed.

On the Corsair, one of several types flown by US MARINE CORP ace Marine Gregory "Pappy" Boyington in WWII, had inverted gull wings. This design used the largest propeller and engine of it's day, and thus needed every trick in the book to keep it's landing gear short enough to be effective. Inverting a gull wing provided propeller clearance.

Comic books are objects of art, and as such remind us of other such objects of art, like the Corsair.
