League of Legends - Wukong, the Monkey King

This Champion looks Amazing. After watching his game play video that was release not to long ago I was really impressed by what Riot had come up with. I like how he has 2 abilities that dont really resemble anything any other champion does withe the Decoy and Nimbus Strike. Another thing that intrigued me was his Ultimate that send the monkey into a furious spin(much like Garen) that knocks the other champions you hit with it into the air, The thing worrying me about his Ult would be if you could knock the same person up multiple times. If that is the case this champion will be ridiculously Over-Powered  since he could knock up lock any of there champions close together. I personally hope that his Ult can only knock up each person on there team once, I feel that that would give him a beastly ultimate that isn't overpowered or "broken".
When this champion first comes out I predict that there will be a lot of Tanky dps builds, But right off the bat I am going to try to go for a melee carry build. I think that with the pure dps build that you will maximize your damage but wont leave yourself out to dry by being the target for ganks every chance they get with the ability Decoy + flash/ghost  I predict him to be very hard to gank in early to mid game.
Abilities
Stone Skin (Passive): Wukong's armor and magic resistance are increased for each nearby enemy champion.
Crushing Blow: Wukong swings his mighty staff with incredible speed, crushing his opponent. This attack deals additional physical damage and reduces the enemy's Armor for a short duration.
Decoy: Wukong utilizes his cleverness to trick his foes. He becomes stealthed for 1.5 seconds and leaves an uncontrollable decoy behind that will deal Magic Damage to enemies near it after 1.5 seconds.
Nimbus Strike: Wukong dashes on a cloud toward a target enemy and sends out images to attack up to 2 additional enemies near his target, dealing physical damage to each enemy struck.
Cyclone (Ultimate): Wukong's staff grows outward and he spins it around, dealing damage and knocking up enemies. Wukong gains movement speed over the duration of the spell.
