Heyo,
I have played a lot of malphite for 1 month now and i have a 92.3% winrate (13 games) in 1600-1730 elo with him. Teams with Malphite have a 55% winrate in soloq (http://www.lolking.net/champions/malphite), which is pretty unbalanced for a teamgame. I listed some issues, why Malphite is such a strong pick right now and why people should start banning him more:

(Some of these issues might get better with players who get familiar to malphite but some issues are just gamebreaking)

- Strong laningface - sometimes a bully, but always a great farmer.
- People dont know counters (they pick Vlad or Irelia vs him lol)
- Most AD Carrys tend to get crushed by Malphite (dont buy qss and get down in 1 combo), which loses the lategame.
- Unstoppable ganking power - goes back from toplane or ganks from the jungle and kills with like 80% probability
- AWESOME initiator and works great with most AP carrys (Aoe like Morgana Kennen Galio Brand Anivia Cass Karthus Orianna Vlad Ryze)
- Firstpick can go Top and Jungle (cant counter specific like Rumble, because he can jungle aswell)
- Can build tanky (350 armor) and does awesome damage with 40%cdr
- His Q = ungankable lane like his R
- Offers a lot of utility when he's far behind (As debuff and initiate)

Riot will nerf him - for sure, just pay some attention and dont pick AS- based champions vs him. Sure u can win the lane but u will be useless endgame (0.4 AS) vs a frozen randuins ground slam Malphite. Just my two cents.

55% is not something to count as significant

Winrates are a pretty bad way to judge a character's power... Amumu and Rumble have even higher win rates, should we ban them too?

It is... you got to take into account that the player got teammates in solo queue who can be responsible for the loses due to being uncarryable. A 55% winrate across every ELO for one champion is really to high. Even Blizzard for SC 2 said that there are problems with a race if in one match up there happens to be a race having a higher then 55% winrate, of course Blizz uses a different matchmaking system and a different game but it's obvious that something is wrong with Malphite.
