Mack is the only recurring male character of Daria and Jane's age at [[Lawndale High]] who acts with courage, intelligence, and integrity, and as such he enjoys their respect. Ironically, in interviews with [[Kara Wild]], both [[Glenn Eichler]] and [[Anne D. Bernstein]], two of the driving forces behind the show, stated that this was because Mack was never developed fully, as the show's staff never cast his voice actor to their satisfaction. (Four different voice actors did Mack's voice over five seasons.) Because Mack wasn't fully developed, he wasn't given flaws. This is subject to occasional self-parody in the series. For example, in the episode [[Ill]], Jodie qualifies her statement that anyone could catch a rash after Mack looks her quizzically, suggesting that Mack would be incapable of catching a rash.

Subtle references are made in the series to Mack's high intelligence, though one wonders if it is high only in comparison with 95% of his fellow students, who often appear to be (generously speaking) morons. With help from the school Computer Club, he and Jodie [http://web.archive.org/web/20010618230754/www.mtv.com/mtv/tubescan/animation/daria/lhs/about.html designed the school's website] and he runs the [[Lawndale Lions]] sub-site, according to an extinct MTV webpage. He knows Shakespeare at least as well as Daria Morgendorffer ("[[Cafe Disaffecto]]" comments about the skull in ''Hamlet''). An avid sports fan, he has an extensive knowledge of American football and its history, making numerous references to the same in a short written speech that appears in ''[[The Daria Diaries]]''.
