Zack is the wielder of the Mastodon Power Coin which he uses to become the Black Power Ranger. He is a popular and easy going guy with a troubled home life he's hesitant to share with the others.
During an early mission, in Italy, Zack successfully piloted the Megazord and defeated Rita's monster while Jason helped out on the ground. When the Red Ranger's heroics were celebrated over his own, Rita selected him as her first choice to become the Green Ranger, sensing jealousy in him and the desire to become the leader. Zack was tempted by the offer but, instead, unsuccessfully tried to steal the Green Ranger's power coin before she could create such a ranger. He confessed the confrontation to Zordon, but kept it secret from his friends.
After Tommy joined the team, Zack became wary of his involvement. He openly questioned how much control Rita still had over him, with his distrust causing him to become confrontational with Tommy on more than one occasion though the two were eventually able to settle their differences. Zack, along with the other original rangers, were depowered by the Black Dragon - who had taken Billy's Power Coin to sever their connection the Morphing Grid and their Zords. He was temporarily re-powered by Tommy's Power Coin as a Green Ranger and reacquired his Mastadon.
Participating in a final push against Drakkon's Tower on the Moon in the World of the Coinless, Zack manned his station in the Dragonzord Battle Mode led by Kimberly, who Jason entrusted with Tommy's Dragon Armor. Within one of the several Megazords present, the Rangers led the fight against a massive army of Ranger Sentries. Eventually, however, the Megazords were overwhelmed by the arrival of Lord Drakkon's immense Zord, Serpentera, whose assault forced the Rangers out from their cockpits onto the ground.
