My cousin recently got into the game. I told him I used to play a ton of Karthus mid. He was shocked to hear that Karthus could even go mid. What happened to my boy?
I once had a dream where Vulpix was playable in Smash. I fully support this now.

He's a jungler, and very rarely a bot laner. Those phat Qs and aoe E clear single/multiple camps super fast. He's like a lawnmower in the jungle.
Wishing things were different is a great way to torture yourself.

Yep. And while it might not be the greatest gank tool, his wall still does a decent enough job.
I'm tired of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with them later.

This is true, because the greatest gank tool is the one that hits all 3 lanes simultaneously.

Plus Karthus' greatest strength aside from his ult is that he is able to make jungle objectives (dragon/baron) significantly more dangerous because his AoE from his W and E can cover the pits. Plus if he dies near the objectives, he still has a chance at stealing objectives from the enemy jungler. That happened in my last game, thankfully with Karthus on my team.

His damage and sustain is too good a jungle.

At mid, he has big damage but he can't keep up with most assassins all-in by what I remember.

He scales very well because global ult and can do things while dead.

A squishy mage with zero CC, zero mobility and zero defensive tools will get shredded by all the assassins in mid lane, so it's best for Karthus to hide in the jungle and avoid confrontation as much as possible.

Wall of pain also grants vision. It's pretty underrated

He's a pretty high skill cap champ

This. Back in the day midlane was 90% mages. Lux, Annie, Ahri, Ryze, Karth, Morgana.

Now it is lots of assassins. Karth is just too squishy to face most of the current mid roster.
