I _________ you this question

Hold on to your short attention spans. This is gonna be a lot of reading.
The answers of all these questions are connected. Give the connection too.
Question 1
Dr. X is a fictional character introduced in a series of novels by British author Sax Rohmer. It was also featured extensively in cinema, television, radio, comic strips and comic books for over 90 years, and has become an archetype of the evil criminal genius. It  became a stereotype often associated with the Yellow Peril and has inspired numerous other characters like Ming the Merciless, Dr. No, Dr. Zin from the Jonny Quest, Dr. Yen-Lo from The Manchurian Candidate, Lo-Pan from Big Trouble in Little China, Marvel Comics foe the Mandarin, DC Comics’ Rā’s al Ghūl.

                                      — The Beatles, “Glass Onion”
Glass Onion consists almost entirely of cryptic shout outs to the group’s earlier songs.
 John Lennon was so fed up with fans trying to find hidden allusions in their songs that he decided to write a completely nonsensical one. Lennon allegedly said, “Let’s see the fuckers figure that one out” after finishing it. Which, in an ironic twist, was still searched for “clues“.
What is X in the lyrics?
Question 3
When kept as a talisman, a X is said to bring good luck. Many believe that to hang it with the ends pointing upwards is good luck as it acts as a storage container of sorts for any good luck that happens to be floating by, whereas to hang it with the ends pointing down, is bad luck as all the good luck will fall out. Others believe that it should be hung the other way, as it will then release its luck to the people around it.
A stylized variation of the X is used for a popular throwing game, Xs.
Superstitious sailors believe nailing a X to the mast will help their vessel avoid storms.

William Addis of England is believed to have produced the first mass-produced X in 1780.In 1770 he had been jailed for causing a riot; while in prison he took a small animal bone, drilled small holes in it, obtained some bristles from a guard, tied them in tufts, passed the tufts through the holes on the bone, and glued them. He soon became very rich. He died in 1808, and left the business to his eldest son, also called William; the company continues to this day under the name of Wisdom Xs.
