Zodac, originally a member of the Council Of The Wise, is more commonly known as the "Cosmic Enforcer", meaning that he has to maintain the balance of power between good and evil. Zodac possesses incredible power far beyond that of mortal men. He has the ability to travel through the universe at amazing speeds, usually on his throne, and can effortlessly change the balance of power. Because Zodac's power has not been manifested physically, most of what he is capable of doing is beyond comprehension. Although he no longer calls Eternia home, the constant struggle over the Power Sword, has often called him back to his native planet to maintain the eternal balance between good and evil. Zodac participates little in conflict but can aid either the heroic or evil sides in their hour of need. He leans more towards the side of good and serves essentially to help maintain peace within the universe.

Once a member of Eternia's Council of Elders, Zodac chose to retain his human form and left Eternia after Grayskull's demise. Finding peace among the stars, Zodac was recruited by the Overlords of Trolla to become a Cosmic Enforcer, beings tasked with maintaining neutrality throughout the universe. Although he no longer calls Eternia home, the constant struggle over the Power Sword has often called him back to his native planet to maintain the eternal balance between good and evil.
According to Strobo's Official Bio, Zodac continues to serve in his role as a Cosmic Enforcer. Unfortunately, Zodac is later assassinated, leaving Strobo to take his place and investigate the situation of Zodac's assassination.
Sent by the Overlords to investigate the assassination of Zodac on Eternia, young Strobo was drawn into a web of intrigue when Slamurai brought him to a hidden lair where, to his shock, a living Zodac greeted him. There, Zodac told Strobo that he faked his death after a team of Elite Cosmic Enforcers were sent to murder him by their ancient leader, the Supreme Arbitor. Strobo listened in horror as Zodac revealed that the Supreme Arbitor and his "Elite Eleven" had become mad and corrupt in their quest to enforce neutrality, pointing to secret atrocities committed in the name of cosmic balance, and without the benevolent Overlords' knowledge. Instructing Strobo to abandon the Enforcers and join the Heroic Warriors, Zodac made his survival known to King He-Man and the Sorceress Teela when he learned that the Supreme Arbitor planned on vaporizing the population of the Priman city Levitan to counterbalance the many resurrections caused by the Reawakening. With the aid of He-Man, Zodak, and eventually Zanthor, Zodac led a contingent of Heroic Warriors and Galactic Protectors into space to stop the insane Supreme Arbitor.
- Zodac was voiced by Lou Scheimer in the Filmation cartoons.
- The writer of the 1980s minicomic "Slave City" created a villain for the story whose name was Zodak, unaware that there was already a character in the toy line with that name. When asked by Mattel why the character in his comic did not resemble the toy, he realized that there was an existing character with the name of Zodac, and therefore changed his villain's name to 'Lodar'. Since the comics had already been printed, the text had to be physically altered, removing part of the "Z" to make an "L", and making the "K" into an "R".
- 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 action figure is tagged as "Evil Cosmic Enforcer" and his action figure, despite being human, 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 description on the back of his toy card read "Zodac attacks the Heroic Warriors with all the evil power at his command", an ambiguous description, which one can interpret as signifying either a generic Evil Warrior, or a universal enforcer of evil who somehow epitomized all evil power.
