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.
“Whoever writes English is involved in a struggle that never lets up even for a sentence. He is struggling against vagueness, against obscurity, against the lure of the decorative adjective, against the encroachment of Latin and Greek, and above all, against the worn-out phrases and dead metaphors with which the language is cluttered up.”
