Riddle me this - please, enlighten me!

A mage can get fed, and perform really well, getting lots of gold, full build pew pew tons of damage, right? That mage still dies in 2 hits, and does not have the potential to hard carry a game when their teammates are bad. A bruiser can do the same amount of damage, but be tankier, have more mobility, and all around hard to kill, while being able to hard carry 1 v 5 flawlessly. So why in the world would anyone go mage -- the intended "glass cannon" if we are being outdamaged by classes with more survivability and mobility, and don't have single handed carry potential?
