Yes or no?

Kennen has strong pre-6 poke that Diana can't do much about.

Kennen has strong disengage that, timed properly with a stun, interrupts Diana's pull (dunno if it's a bug or not)

Diana ults, Kennen ults, Diana cannot disengage out of it, especially if Kennen has his E up.

Kennen can, and usually does, build tanky enough to survive Diana's burst.

Thoughts? Discuss.

A smart Diana however, will Q Kennen before jumping to him. She will pull, he will E away, she will dash to him again. She can negate quite a bit of his harass with her shield, and her damage is honestly a little op. In teamfights? Kennen provides more utility. 1vs1? I'd have to place my bet with Diana.

You're wrong. Ken's harass is really ****py in mid, even vs a melee champ. 35 damage auto attacks won't win him the lane. Spec completely AD and start drowns blade and you will deny her hard.

Yeah his harass gets stopped by creeps. A good diana can easily stop all forms of harass. post 6 i dont think kennen will be able to have enough damage to out sustain diana burst, especially if diana has decent damage and can survive the kennen thinking he can out damage her with his ult on.

Diana can beat Kennen easy imo .
Diana´s ult gives her enough utility to counter Kennen´s spells to avoid the stun and that nasty dmg .

Q is too easy to block with minions if you're trying to shut her down early. You'd probably have to go with the setup throatslasher mentioned and rely on autoattacks. She is still a melee after all, and with no gap-closer pre6.

Also you have to keep in mind that Diana's ult is on a much shorter cooldown. If she Qs and Rs onto you and you're forced to ult, she can easily just R to one of your minions (assuming an engagement close to your tower) or just shield most of your damage if you aren't very strong yet. If she survives your ultimate, even if she blew hers, she's going to have hers up again much sooner.
Thanks to TinyStar for the sig!
