Not exactly. Some champions are designed to be very strong in 1v1, most solo tops such as Jax, GP, Olaf, etc. are very tough 1v1. However, they get shut down very hard if teamed up on, so they are less viable in team fights. Other champions though, such as Anivia, will die in a 1v1, but can be very strong in team fights and can do better in a 2v1 than some champs.

buy frozen heart against him. the attack speed debuff can really hurt his damage output. In teamfights jax needs to be in the right in the middle to do damage so once he jumps in just get some CC and he is done. The thing about Jax is that he is probably the best 1v1 duelist but in teamfights he gets melted if the enemy team is half-decent, because most of his damage is only against a single target.

I beat him as Jayce before. Mr. champ can't dodge my gate cannon combos

You wait for him to do something stupid and then punish him for it.

Always use the buddy system when dealing with Jax.

If he's fed... then you don't deal with him... he deals with you.

If he ace's your team... I would suggest surrendering, because it will only get worse for your team from that point forward.

Maybe if you have a TF, Yi, or Sivir on your team... you might be able to split-push to victory... but it's still a longshot against fed Jax.

One does not simply "beat" Jax mother.

Malphite, decent passive shield, damage scaling off armor, attack speed debuff.

It's just too much for Jax to handle.

Depends on how fed you get, how much you heal, and how many ignites you have on you.

GP works as a good counter to Jax I know from experience haha
Otherwise I don't see many counters, just try to get him to pop his E (counter strike) then play aggressive/call a gank
