Nightcrawler vs Beast Boy

To my understanding, Nightcralwer was originally going to be in Doom Patrol or something like that. He was instead saved for X-Men. Even if that's not true (tho I think it is) who wins?

As long as NC fights in character, BB should win.
If we start debating NC head teleports...BB should still win, as BB at full potential as well, could become small enough to fly in NCs ear then become an elephant.

As to NCs almost DC roots, you were close.
I guess.
The Outsiders didnt pop up till the 80s so not sure how the timing works out.
I wanna say this site meant the LoSH, as Cockrum had ties to them and even managed to work unused character designs into the Imperial Guard.

Dave Cockrum, Nightcrawler’s creator, originally pitched Kurt to DC as a part of their team, The Outsiders, but his inclusion ultimately wound up being rejected. One man’s garbage is another man’s treasure, and the blue-skinned mutant instead made his debut for Marvel in May of 1975.

Beast Boy teaches him how to be hip & cool. Kurt joins the Titans instead.

Scourge, you gotta read the above link.
Turns out the Outsiders were a team Cockrum created to be part of the LoSH-verse.
Not only was Nightcrawler lifted from there, but apparently Storm was, too.
Even Wolverine owes something to the concepts he was working on after he jumped to Marvel.
