Previous IQs:

IQ1: Are you a stereotypical cigar-chomping, fast-talking, hard-bitten city newspaper editor who employs a photographer with unusual skills? Correct, J. Jonah Jameson.

IQ2: Are you the actor who portrayed IQ1? Correct, J.K. Simmons

IQ3: Are you a best-selling Scottish author who has something in common onomastically with IQ2? You might kick yourself the way I did with Ian Malcolm; the answer is J.K. Rowling.


DQ1: Painter?
