Probably not, but I wanted to share this with all of you...

Jax has 5 fingers in the Chinese artwork. While it cannot be taken as 100% cannon, I would be willing to surmise that Jax NORMALLY has 5 fingers, but uses gloves. The gloves combine the pointer/middle fingers, and the ring/pinky fingers.

So what is actually 5 fingers looks like 3.

Edit: This might have already been said, but it was new to me, and I thought it worth bringing up.


This would further support the notion that Jax is a human, and not an outlandish being like Morgana/Kayle, Renekton/Nasus, Taric (doesn't have the same magic as the rest of the league, but draws power/magic out of his gems), and Kassadin/Malzahar/Void beings.

Artwork isn't the most reliable way to tell species imo.

After all, the number of fingers Yi has seems to differ between his NA splash art.

I believe the new Jax Chinese portraits depict him with the standard 2 finger and 1 thumb.

EDIT: Found it!

The problem with the old picture was that it was entirely inaccurate. You take another look at the picture and you realize that they could have just made this into a new champion and we would not notice.
