Isn't that the fantasy of the shield? Or am I alone in that?
What if the new tank had a ult which creates a protective wall or bubble that absorbs damage?

Champion uses a giant shield. Passive is that allies behind him gain additional Armor and Magic Resist.

His ult is a 'Malphite' ult. However, instead of knocking them up, he passes through all enemies and knocks them to the side.

Scales purely off of resistances.

The champion could be a martial artist.

As well you could go with a different approach making the shields hextech and putting three smaller mining drills that rotate on each. Allow the champion to charge through terrain or drill underground to strike his foes from beneath.

Put These:

Ever notice how 60% of champions have shoulder pads?
What are Nocturne's even made of?

GW2 style, block everything in front of the champion.

Also, dual-wielding shields.
How are 2 bucklers any different than large gauntlets or knuckles? Beat faces in, defend yourself from angry bystanders, rinse, repeat.

Well, make a skill that is toggled on/off with no resource cost. When activated, the character drops into a defensive stance, behind his shield. His movement speed is reduced, his auto attack is disabled, he can only use shield-based abilities, and reduces all dmg from in front of and to the side. So, if an enemy is behind him, he takes full dmg. This works opposite of Shaco's passive. Also, you could extend the dmg reduction to allies behind him too, kind of like an AoE dmg reduction, without the visible effect.
