Equestria, her hills of gold.
In dark and mournful times of old.
Did once, a hopeless horror hold.

When from her sacred veil did spring.
With storm and flash, a monstrous thing!
His name: Lei Shen, the Somber King.

His thunder BOOMED across the land!
And none who dared and fought, could stand.
'Gainst the Iron Tyrants' hand.

A palace grand, a walled domain.
Such mighty works born of his reign.
Built by slaves.
Their hearts, in chains.

But seasons change, and tyrants die.
His fury spent in times gone by.
The thunder slept, beneath Kun-Lai.

By Serpentine hands, he has been taken!
By Serpentine voice, he has awakened!

Gather Heroes.
Sound the drums.
The Somber King comes...
The Somber King comes...

People think Sombra's a lame villain from lack of screentime and dialog, but it seems to be they've only seen the episode once, because when Sombra does appear the scenes are as epic as A Canterlot Wedding and he is even more malevolent, dark, and imtimidating than Chrysalis. Also while Chrysalis only got a presumed death (unless you view comics as canon), Sombra was KilledOffForReal, and in a spectacular way, as I mention on my Top 90 villain deaths review Sombra is number 3.

All in all, my second favorite villain after Chrysalis and this picture is amazing

I agree with you. Not every villain has to have funny lines and a whacky personality. Sombra is more of a looming, terrifying threat than an antagonist for the heroines and heroes to interact with. Just like Sauron, he is a very iconic villain and he has even less presence than Sombra.

the picture is amazing, the light the texture, the look. I am a little bit down with this character, because he was not used properly as a villan.
he is to cool for just five lines

Beyond epic :) You can believe he's a villain when you look at this. When I saw him in the show, all I could think was, "disturbed 20 year old". Not quite what I expected xD
