  1. I CAN'T DECIDE. I feel like they'd stop mid-fight, look at each other, drop their arms and start making out. Or at least extend a hand in recognition of a perfectly matched duel.

  2. This is a really, really tough one. These two are about as evenly matched as they come. Both vicious, both ambitious, both ruthless — and also both prone to getting their way as much through indirect means as by their own hands.I'm going to go with Lady M here: Iago consistently seems to disdain women, including his own clever wife, so I think he might underestimate Lady M. That gives her an advantage, and Lady M is someone who can definitely grab hold of an advantage and use it for her purposes.
