Maximus Octavious "Max" Thunderman is the main antagonist/anit-hero/deuteragonist on the series The Thundermans. Max is portrayed by Jack Griffo.


When people think of nice and helpful, they don't first think of Pheobe's brother Max. His dream is to follow out a true life of evil, but, has shown to have his nice ways. He also owns a evil lair where he does all of his evil things. He has many gadgets like the Max 3000 (a computer created by Max) and an evil pet called Dr Colosso.


When it comes to taking shortcuts, Max Thunderman is your guy. He's mischievous to no end, and has big plans on attending Villain U when he's older. He has the same superpowers as his twin sister Phoebe, but he uses his for whipping up gadgets and potions in his evil lair instead. He is highly intelligent, as wells being very manipulative able to get others to do whatever he wants with ease, he is highly cunning and normally manages to stay one step ahead of others and very brilliant. However he is also somewhat arrogant.

Max is also somewhat lazy, although incredibly brilliant and a genius in his own right, he does not normally apply himself or focus on his school subjects, preferring instead to work in his lair on his inventions, formulate schemes or pranks. However he doesn't take kindly to people implying or stating he couldn't handle said subjects and will often go out of his way to prove them wrong. He reveals the reason he wants to be a supervillain, it stems from the fact he doesn't want to be second best as a hero to his sister. Despite Max's assertion of being a villain, underneath it all it seems he is really a good person at heart, as he does come through for others when they need him and will do the right thing when it really matters.


  • Phoebe Thunderman - Phoebe is Max's twin sister, who he usually annoys and aggravates. The two generally don't get along, however underneath it all,no matter how much he denies it, Max really does care about his sister. He is also somewhat envious of her.
  • Tara Campbell - When he first sees her walking in the hallway in the episode Dinner Party, it feels like love at first sight for him, he completely freezes and follows her around. When Phoebe invites the Campbell's because she wants to hang out with Cole, he finds out that Tara is Cole's older sister. Max asks her what she would think if he would sabotage the dinner and she answers that it would be the dumbest thing he could ever do. At the end of the episode Tara knocks on the door and says "Call me" and leaves.
  • Allison - Max and Allison first met in Floral Support and didn’t seem to like each other very much in the beginning which is confirmed by both of them in Date Expectations.
    • Date Expectations: When Phoebe set both Allison and Max up on date to trick Allison out of the school, they started to bond while planning their revenge. Later they both have a discussion in which it is revealed that they have more in common (Allison’s parents are telling her she’s going through a phase just like it’s the case with Max) and he apologizes to her for his former behaviour. Both seem to develop a crush on each other at the end of the day.
    • In He Got Game Night Allison is Max’s partner at the Thunderman's family game night which ends in her running away as he tells Phoebe that him and Allison are not a couple, leaving Max sad and confused. In the end and with help of the family members he then finally realizes his feelings for the girl, chases after her and formally asks her to be his girlfriend. They are together now.
