Maximus Octavius "Max" Thunderman is alongside his twin sister, Phoebe Thunderman, the main protagonist of the American comedy television series The Thundermans. He is a superhero whose superpowers include Telekinesis, Heat Breath, and Freeze Breath. After years of aspiring to become a supervillain, he eventually chose to become a superhero.
He is portrayed by Jack Griffo.
Why He Sucks
- Max is an generic rebellious teenage boy, as shown by his attempts to become a villain...in a family of superheroes.
- Usually, he doesn't learn his lesson after his antics backfire.
- Even though Max knows he’s in the wrong, he doesn't care at all. All he wants to do is cause problems while trying to stay cool and having fun.
- He never takes anyone into consideration, including Phoebe. Speaking of which, the two are terrible influences on Nora, Billy, and Chloe.
- In the Henry Danger crossover, instead of helping Phoebe like he usually does, he ends up betraying her and never helps her (along with Captain Man and Kid Danger) fight off the villains.
- The viewers are supposed to be happy when Max is treated like a punching bag, but in episodes like "You've Got Fail", "Doubles Trouble", and "Cape Fear", Max would make such a big fool of himself that viewers actually feel embarrassed for him more than anything.
- Max is supposed to be 14 at the start of the series. However, he looks far more older, as his actor, Jack Griffo, was 17 by the time "Adventures in Supersitting" premiered in 2013.
- He's unintentionally sympathetic considering that he is trying to be a villain just to be different, and gets punished way more than his siblings.
- He's more likable and interesting of a character than his twin sister, Phoebe, and the rest of his family.
- He finally becomes a superhero and ends his evil phase in the season three finale.
- Occasionally, he puts his family ahead of what he wants.
- As revealed in the finale, he loves his family deep down and cannot imagine life without them.
- He's a rather tragic character, because he's ignored by his family for Phoebe, made fun of, and is generally picked on. Plus, he has low self-esteem and fears the Hero and Villain Leagues being hostile against him.
- Max's inventions are very impressive.
- He slightly improved in season 4, but that’s not saying much since he is very flawed in that season, too.
- The Thundermans would not be the same without him.
