Very simple text column comparsion

I'm sorry but I am pretty new on Power BI.

I have a database that has some column and I want to compare two of then, with text format. If they have the same string I want a column or measure to return, let's say, "Equal" and if is different, "Different".

 

Column 1

A

B

C

A

 

Column 2  

A

C

B

B

 

Output

Equal

Different

Different

Different

 

I am sure its pretty simple, so that nobody ever asked this here
