    Maximus Octavius "Max" Thunderman is, alongside his twin sister, Phoebe Thunderman, one of the two main protagonists of the 2013-2018 American comedy television series The Thundermans and The Thundermans Return. 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.

    Villainous Qualities

    1. Max is a generic rebellious teenage boy as shown by his attempts to become a villain... in a family of superheroes.
    2. Usually, he doesn't learn his lesson after his antics backfire.
    3. 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.
    4. He never takes anyone into consideration, including Phoebe. Speaking of which, the two are terrible influences on Nora, Billy, and Chloe. Plus he often called his parents by their first names, which is very disrespectful. Luckily, he stopped doing that in the later seasons.
    5. He tends to whine when things don't go his way, with the offenders being "The Neverfriending Story", "Breaking Dad" and "Beat the Parents".
    6. In the Henry Danger crossover "Danger vs. Thunder", 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.
    7. In the episode "Are You Afraid of the Park?", he and Phoebe made Billy and Nora fight and destroyed their relationship just so they wouldn't go on the ride.
      • Sure, they redeemed themselves at the end, but why couldn't they just tell their parents? They would've just let them sit it out while they go on the ride themselves.
    8. The show mainly encourages you to root for him just because he 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.
    9. Max is supposed to be 14 at the start of the series. However, he looks far older as his actor, Jack Griffo, was 17 by the time "Adventures in Supersitting" premiered in 2013.

    Heroic Qualities

    1. 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.
    2. He's more likable and interesting of a character than his twin sister, Phoebe, and the rest of his family.
    3. He finally becomes a superhero and ends his evil phase in the season three finale.
      • He slightly improved in season 4, but that's not saying much since he is very flawed in that season, too.
    4. 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.
    5. 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.
    6. Max's inventions are very impressive.
    7. The Thundermans would not be the same without him, as he is the deuteragonist of The Thundermans and one of the main characters.
    8. Despite his age, Jack Griffo did a great job playing him.
