Counter to Kennen?

Just simple question, who counters Kennen mid, and isn't like obvious mid counter (maybe not for Kennen, but obvious counters are Morgana, Kass, Leblanc, Galio)? Kass and Morgana are permaban on my ELO, don't have Leblanc and Galio.

He's hard to beat, but fast champions or champions with cc counter his combo, ahri, malza, kass, morgana, ryze, annie... just dodge his shuriken to ruin his combo and mercury threads for tenacity+mresist.

I don't have issues with his shuriken, but ult. Charge (Rush?) + Flash + Ignite + Ult and I always die. I think Ahri will work pretty well I guess.

I think Morgana is a good pick against Kennen because of her sustain and her black shield.

I play kennen a lot. And the enemies that are hardest for me are: Kass, Leblanc, Galio, Morgana, and in some cases cassi. I wouldnt say there is some specific champ to counter him, but harassing him when he pokes is the best counter. Kennen is an aggressive champion, and is countered by playing aggresive.

Any CC will help you and your team mates to counter Kennen! Knock him, stun him or whatever before he positions himself in the center of your team. Janna is a great example of that! She knocks him away fro you and your allies!

Janna is great as a support counter, but I'm talking about laning at mid, everything in post
And my team would rage if I'd play AP Janna mid. And I myself play Cassiopeia and found Kennen the only champion I can't rape. Some of them I won, some of them not, but basically he out-damages me (once 6), which happens very rarely when I play her, and even if I play passively, as I already said he bursts me down too fast.

Then try what Loklite says. Try it with Morgana or Kassadin. And play agressive.

Morgana's shield will protect your from his stuns, her bind will keep him at bay and your soil will damage him. Just try to harras him as much as possible because he is a tough rat to kill. And try to predict his movements!
