I don't think Lex is out of his range...Oz was fantastic

Col. Hardy was a real American hero, more badass than G.I. Joe

Meloni and the entire military was very well-portrayed in this film. They were badass but yet, you could see they were outmatched by the Kyrptonians. I also like how the military was the one dealing with most of the action, which is how it would be if this went down in real life. Not some Smallville guy with a rake.

"This man is not our enemy" Awesome moment.

Meloni proved that he could be a serious movie star in this movie. I hope his character returns in the sequel!

I left wishing they had saved him for Lex. He would've been great in the role.

Hope his character returns? How? Besides that was enough of him. He played his role. Sometimes less is more. And no he would not have been good for Lex.

^ No, I don't want anymore Henry Ducards or John Blake reveals. Hardy gave the second half of MOS some much needed personality.

I think he was pretty much presented as being the new DCU's version of Guardin in MOS.

I liked Meloni. I thought it was good that even though they were clearly outmatched by the Kryptonians that they still had an active hand in saving the day.

I also can't help but wonder. Does anyone else wonder if he, Dr. Hamilton and the Kryptonians are alive? I mean they were sucked back into the Phantom Zone, but would that have killed them?

The black zero on very certain conditions could enter the phantom zone intact

From the novel they're basically ripped into atoms since the black zero couldn't store them.

I think they died since I noticed in my last screening that the plane exploded when it crashed into Black Zero.

Maybe Lex finds his remains and he becomes Metallo.

He could always be a vessel for Braniac as well.
