All you need is some orientation

A celebrity in the field of Biochemistry, and a knight to boot,

this man X created a technique which has something to do with pic1. The technique is thusly, named after him. Let’s call it X1.

sir_biochemist

sir_biochemist

structure_pic1

structure_pic1

Now, the prankster scientists in the field started naming other techniques as a pun on X1.

So, a technique based on pic2 was called Y ( which had some relevance in naming, in fact)
and one based on pic3 was called Z ( no connection whatsoever, done just for kicks) and so on.
The list continues for some 2 more techniques.

structure_pic2

structure_pic2

structure_pic3

structure_pic3

hints:
1. pic1, pic2, and pic3 are generic representations.
2. pic2 has three subtypes, one of which is a courier of sorts.

X, X1.
Y, Z, please.

The suit, and the group, please.

3. Shown is a representation of a character Z, wearing a suit, famous around the WWII times. These have had their share of notoriety owing to a violent sequence of events, at around the same timeframe. The chief perpetrators were identified by their excessive ‘wearage’ of these type of suits.
The character is of course part of a long-running comic strip created by Y.
The ‘soot’, and Y( or the comic strip).
