  1. The first one's tough. Both are adept at combat, both have experience in the field — but since we know quite definitely that Philip is "of woman born" — we actually *meet* his mom, after all — I'm giving the edge to Macbeth.In the second match, I think Tybalt's finesse will get the better of Doll. She's great for a rough-and-tumble tavern brawl, but her knifework is no match for Tybalt's deadly training.
