Yes on the first two. Last one was Erasmus; but I remembered, after it was too late to edit, that he was Dutch, not Swiss. So I won’t claim a DQ on that.

IQ1: Are you a mythopoetic personification of the planet Venus, who sails the heavens in your longship, with a shining gem bound on your brow?

IQ2: Are you the queen of the gods, in that same mythos?

IQ3: Are you a Massachusetts governor who gave his name to a sleazy political tactic?

Come to think of it, Dash powered their "boat" (Elastigirl herself) in the first Incredibles movie by kicking in the water, so take another DQ.

IQ1: Are you a mythopoetic personification of the planet Venus, who sails the heavens in your longship, with a shining gem bound on your brow?

IQ2: Are you the queen of the gods, in that same mythos?

IQ3: Are you a Massachusetts governor who gave his name to a sleazy political tactic?
