Damage isn't the same as "Best early game", in a good early game phase u need tons of things to be "good against everything", u can have TONS of damage, but what if the enemy has TONS of sustain? plus CC and decent damage?, u're screwed, there must be a balance between Sustain, Damage and CC.
I would say Irelia has all of it, good sustain, good damage (true damage!), gap closer, which resets if she kills the enemy with it, a hard cc (stun), and an awesome ulti
Garen is another one, decent CC, slow cleanse, a shield which reduces CC (with merc's he's unostoppable), awesome damage in E, and an executioner ult, plus really good sustain from his passive.
And the third one i think is Nidalee, good sustain (heal), steroid, nice poking, and she doesn't needs that much CC because she's almost impossible to catch.
