In what way? I think the idea was for him to show that, on the one hand, he's a ruthless type who will stop at nothing to achieve his goals, but on the other, he's just someone looking out for the preservation of his people. However, I don't think Shannon properly conveyed concern or compassion in that regard. He just seemed like your typical run-of-the-mill angry bad guy. For instance, when Supes told him to stop, and he said, "NEVER!", I almost laughed out loud. I can't blame Shannon for that part of the script though. That's all Goyer.
