Zodac was one of the first characters to be conceived by Mattel in the development of the Masters of the Universe toy line, in 1981.
His real name is Argon of Zargoniatronix. His action figure is tagged as 'Evil Cosmic Enforcer' and his action figure, despite being seemingly of human origin, is given claw-like feet, a standard trait of the line's evil characters. However, he does not appear in any of the toys' accompanying minicomics, leaving many buyers unsure of the exact nature of his character or what role he plays in the story.
The general representation of Zodac is that he is a neutral character, a cosmic enforcer who participates little in conflict but can aid either the heroic or evil sides in their hour of need. However, the original box information on the character listed him as an Evil Warrior, and this representation filtered through to a few other versions of the franchise. The design and character of Zodac is heavily influenced by the New God, Metron, created by Jack Kirby for his Fourth World comic series.
