How is Katarina any good anywhere? On stun cancels her whole kit..

Because it doesn't really? BB is really powerful. The damage and anti-heal. Partially just from destroying in lane, she can break an AP mid, and/or get fed and just cripple the other teams end game. And then with her ult, simply waiting for stuns/silences to be burned, then going in. Easy enough to get off more then often.

The tanky aoe aps are very strong late game for sustained damage and ability to stay in the teamfight (Ryze, Vlad, Swain, Morde) I'd also consider Morg, Kennen, Cass and Karth to be part of that because of their kit.
Veiger is great late game burst/aoe and stun. In general tho, late game is more about the AD carry than the AP carry, and the main goal of the AP to is burst down their team's AD carry so assassin APs like LB can still be viable.

AOE is the best bet, so go Brand [% damage], Malzahar [% damage] or Annie [AOE CC]. Ryze is a good tanky option who relies on mana more than AP. Veigar has an insanely good stun and packs a huge punch for single target.

Easy answer is to give Ryze a shot. 450ip meaning he's easily attained. Turn on smartcasting for rapid burst cause he has no skillshots. His build is pretty easy to learn, and the cple adjustments in build order are easy to spot for correct times to apply. His ult late game teamfights is just devastating that AOE get's really deadly when his E(bounce spell) hit's all 5 champs in the river @ baron fight.

His main downside is early game. But a lil managment in focusing on farming with just a bit of harassing and not really going for kill early let's you get the kill when they overextended around the time you get your ult @ lvl 6.

Do note: He's squishy early into mid game, until you get rod of ages(or banshee's veil) really.
