to be fair...a Morgana with an Omen will initiate a LOT better than a Mundo with a Warmog's...your analogy is flawed, she is a much better tank XD

That doesn't make them a tank. They're just filling in for the tank, in that they can absorb damage. They're tanky, but they're not actual tanks.

I said that mundo is not a tank, an morgana cannot initiate AND soak up damage without using a useless joke build.

The thing is that the tank has to deal a decent amount of damage to make the enemies think they should attack him
I think that's why chars such as malphite, who deals a nice amount of damage, is considered a tank among the community
You seem to misunderstand. I said that Malphite/Ram/Mumu like champs are tanks and Mundo/Garen/Sion are NOT tanks.

If she's initiating and soaking up damage than she's a lot less useless than most characters. I think you need to learn to read carefully and think before you post.

But there's other champions who can do that job so much better. It's like building attack speed Rammus. Kinda pointless, don't you think? Morg shouldn't be filling the role of the tank, that isn't what she's made for. You can make anyone a damage sink, just by building armour/MR/health on them, but that doesn't make them a tank, it makes them tanky.

Mumu, Malph, and Ram are all excellent initiators that force team fights in a way that Mundo/Garen/Morde cannot. I don't care if you build all tank items on them. I can build all tank items on Morgana (and I do in normals, it's fun) but that does not make her fulfill the role that a tank should. Now I know that not all teams need tanks, and I keep silent if our team is full of hard cc or we have Ashe, but this is getting so bad that people are calling Sion a tank and building AP, or saying that they are tanking with blitz but rushing a manamune... please stop...
1. mundo can be a very effetive tank, he can get on top of their squishies and harass the hell out of them, and make their life in a team fight a pain with the CC reduction.
2. what makes garen seem like a tank is his move that gives him more AR/MR, and he used to be a really effective tank,but riot saw it necessary to move hi to a dps roll.
3. the reason people rush a manamune on blitz is to build his mana up. this way when he gets low on health his mana shield absorbs lot sof damage. is he the only tank you want for a team? of course not, but he is very tankish.

A tank's primary purposes are(in order):

Initiate
Crowd Control
Survive

If by building tank then she can do all three of these effectively then...

Compared to "tank" Mundo who can...survive(sometimes)

She is the better tank by far.




And no, DPS Rammus doesn't work. He has nothing in his skill set to support it. Morg has several CCs and innate survivability skills to bolster her tank arsenal. But Rammus has no effective steroid, dash, burst skill, so he makes a terrible DPS.
