Heck, I'm the protector of Hiddenville. If something went wrong, I'd call myself.
— Phoebe, Chutes and Splatters
Phoebe Monica Rachel Thunderman is the protagonist of The Thundermans along with her twin brother Max Thunderman. She is a superhero whose superpowers include Telekinesis, Heat Breath and Freeze Breath. Her superhero name is ThunderGirl. Phoebe is portrayed by Kira Kosarin.
Like the rest of her family, Phoebe has superpowers and is training to become a superhero. Like her twin brother Max, Phoebe tries to use her powers for good.
Phoebe is the oldest daughter of Barb and Hank Thunderman, born 20 seconds earlier than her twin brother, Max. Her younger siblings are Billy, Nora and Chloe Thunderman, and they are the Thunder Kids.
School and Friends
In Hiddenville, Phoebe goes to Hiddenville High with Max. At the school, Phoebe made her first friend, Cherry who is still her best friend. At first, the friendship was a challenge because Phoebe had to lie to her best friend to keep the family's superpowers a secret.
Phoebe also made other friends like Sarah and Ashley through Sarah's group of smart students after joining them for Math Bowl in Report Card. Phoebe was a perfect match for the group because she was already one of the smartest students. However, at the same time, she still struggled to fit in with the popular girls. One of the popular girls, Veronica, attacked her with spitballs during choir solo auditions. Madison became Phoebe's enemy after making Phoebe fail cheerleader tryouts and trying to humiliate Cherry. Any attempt to become friends with Winnie Lee ended up in humiliation until Phoebe stopped trying. By the junior year, she managed to become friends with one of the cheerleaders, Maddy and her friend Roxy. However, Cherry remains to be Phoebe's best friends.
Since joining the school, Phoebe has been very involved in most school activities. She was the captain of the Math Bowl in Report Card. She ran for class president in You Stole My Thunder, Man but she ended up losing it to Max. She tried for school choir in Pretty Little Choirs but Veronica attacked her with spitballs. She helped organize school dance in The Amazing Rat Race and the junior prom in Thundermans: Secret Revealed. However, her school life hasn't been smooth because she often finds herself in trouble with Principal Bradford who hates both Phoebe and Max.
Phoebe showed her desire to train and become a superhero and her dad offered to train her. In Thunder Van, she started training to join the Hero University but after she had Max messed up in the Thunder Van, she decided to take it slow. However, by Cape Fear, she realized that she needed to put more effort in training after her best friend from Metroburg got her Superhero Cape. Unfortunately, she ruined her chances when she sneaked to a rooftop party and used telekinesis to save someone from falling. She let Max take the credit so that she doesn't get in trouble. Max blew up the chance for both of them to get the superhero cape.
Phoebe didn't give up on getting the superhero cape. In A Hero Is Born, Phoebe exposed the family's secret to her best friend Cherry so that Cherry can babysit Chloe while Phoebe saves Max from the evil villains led by King Crab. As a reward for saving Cherry, the Hero League awarded Phoebe a superhero cape.
In Phoebe vs. Max: The Sequel, Phoebe officially started her training to become a superhero. The Hero League assigned her to become the protector of Hiddenville as part of her training. Since Hiddenville doesn't have a lot of criminals, she made a deal with Max so that Max will keep committing crimes while Phoebe practices to stop him.
In Evil Never Sleeps the Hero League tested Phoebe's ability to make the right decisions as a superhero by having her choose between saving the world and turning over her boyfriend's dad, Mike Evilman. It was a tough choice for Phoebe but eventually she chose to report Evilman even if that means breaking up with Link. She passed the test.
The next step of Superhero training, the Hero League asked Phoebe to choose a superhero mentor in No Country for Old Mentors. With Max's help, she got Tech Rider as her mentor but he turned out to be reckless. So, she finally chose Thunder Man to be her mentor.
In Back To School, the Hero League discovered that Phoebe hadn't taken her fifth-grade power-assessment test. So, President Kickbutt forced her and Max to go back to Secret Academy of Superpower Studies in order to take the test, or else Phoebe would not qualify to become a superhero.
Superhero Ascension and Z-Force
Phoebe was exposed as Thundergirl in the special, Thundermans: Secret Revealed. In Season 4, she and Max will fight crime together, after he becomes good, in the special. She will also have to deal with the fame with all her friends, after everyone found out about her being, Thundergirl.
In Thundermans: Banished!, Phoebe started training Max to become a good superhero like her. She also got nominated for a chance to join the legendary Z-Force, an elite team of superheroes. This got her distracted from training competition between her and Max. After the Thundermans are banished from Hiddenville by the Hero League, Phoebe and her brother risk everything to come back to Hiddenville and save the city. At the end, both she and Max are nominated for the potential spot on the Z-Force.
Since getting the opportunity to join Z-Force came up, Phoebe has been training vigorously with her twin brother, Max, in order to qualify for the Z-Force slot. In Smells Like Team Spirit, she was worried that Max might mess up and ruin their chances of joining the Z-Force but eventually the Thunder Twins learn to work together. In Max to the Future, she submitted her skills to Z-Force for the team, but Max wanted her to submit at least one of his skills: gadgets. She eventually realized that Max's gadgets do actually work and therefore included them as part of their team's special skills.
Phoebe suffered a neck injury in "May Z-Force Be With You" when Principal Bradford accidentally hit her during ping pong, causing Phoebe to fall off the stair case. Unfortunately, this happened just before an important Z-Force interview which would advance the Thunder Twins to the final stage of the recruitment process. While Phoebe was on full body cast, she trained Cherry to pretend to be her for the interview and it worked.
Main Article : Evil Phases
In Haunted Thundermans, Phoebe is possessed by the Green Ghoul, causing her to become temporarily evil. She goes up to the Hathaway's house and fights Hank for some time. After that, Max tricks the Green Ghoul into thinking that he was going to destroy his father, which lead Miles to also possess Phoebe and get rid of the Green Ghoul. Phoebe returns to normal.
In "Come What Mayhem", Phoebe makes a life-changing decision when one of Max's pranks threatens to ruin the 75th Supe Awards ceremony. When Max tells her that back when he was evil he had planted a stink bomb to go off during the Supe Awards, Phoebe feels that it's her duty to clean another one of Max's mess and save their chances of getting into Z-Force. Since the stink bomb is put inside a Thundertanium casing, it needs an electro-plasma blast to disable it. So, Phoebe suggests taking in Dark Mayhem's powers from the orb but Max warns that Dark Mayhem's powers are pure evil and would turn anyone who uses them evil. Max makes a gadget that utilizes lemon's electro-plasma energy but Phoebe doesn't have much faith in Max's gadget. So, she absorbs Dark Mayhem's powers anyway. She stops the stink bomb despite the fact that Max's gadget would have worked as well.
When Phoebe tries to return the superpowers to the orb, the powers fail to get back in. The powers instead turn Phoebe evil, making her eyes glow red.
In Thunder in Paradise, Phoebe starts having nightmares where she's evil and using her evil Dark Mayhem's powers for evil. She tries to talk to Max about it but Max is still mad at her. To make things worse, the evil powers start taking control over her, making her do things involuntarily like pouring ketchup on Max's head. Out of options, Phoebe goes to the Metroburg Superjail to ask Dark Mayhem how she could get rid of the evil powers but Dark Mayhem tells her to embrace the powers and complete his plans of taking over the world and get revenge on all superheroes. He tells her that she will find everything she needs at a cave at the bottom of the Weeping Volcano in Hawaii. Phoebe tells Dark Mayhem that she will never be as evil as him. She will be more evil. Her eyes glow as her hair develops red highlights, turning her fully evil.
On returning home, Phoebe asks Chloe to secretly teleport her to Hawaii but when the family overhears Chloe, they decide to go to Hawaii for their vacation. During the vacation, Phoebe keeps the family destructed as she goes to the cave. After putting Billy in danger, she runs away and rents an ATV and goes to the cave. Max figures out that something is wrong with Phoebe and chases after her on an ATV. But Phoebe overpowers him with Dark Mayhem's powers, steals his ATV and rides away. Max goes back to get Nora and Billy. Phoebe finds Destructo (an android head). Destructo was Dark Mayhem's sidekick and has all the plans about the next phase. Max, Nora and Billy find Phoebe talking with Destructo. Destructo tells Phoebe about Dark Mayhem's secret supply of Malvexium - the only element that can destroy a hero's power. Dark Mayhem was to use the volcano eruption to spread Malvexium through out the earth's atmosphere, leaving every supervillain and superhero in the world, powerless. Phoebe loves the idea and agrees to go with Destructo to Dark Mayhem's lair. Nora accidentally shouts, exposing where she Max and Billy are hiding. They try to take away her powers with Dark Mayhem's Orb but she overpowers them and destroys the orb. She leaves the cave and destroys its entrance, making it impossible for her siblings to escape.
In Dark Mayhem's lair, Phoebe finds Destructo's body but refuses to attach him until after the masterplan is complete. Destructo complains that Phoebe sounds just like Dark Mayhem. Destructo shows Phoebe the Villain Changing Beam under which Phoebe gets a new evil costume. She loves her new look. The next step is to lower the Malvexium into the boiling lava hidden beneath the cave. Phoebe is interrupted by Max and the rest of the family when they arrive at the lair. She overpowers them and traps them under Dark Mayhem's force field which makes it impossible for them to escape or even use their powers against her. Now they have to watch her take over the world. After pouring Malvexium into the boiling lava, there are only 10 minutes before the volcano erupts. Phoebe's family wait for the countdown, powerless.
Max manages to get the pieces of the broken orb to function. With help of Barb's Electrokinesis, they power the orb which absorbs the force field and Dark Mayhem's evil powers from Phoebe. Phoebe feels sorry for everything she did. But it's almost too late because the volcano is about to erupt and Destructo has figured out a way to attach his head to his body. Now he wants to complete the plan. Hank takes care of Destructo while Phoebe tries to stop the volcano from erupting. Phoebe, feeling guilty, asks Max to lower her down to the boiling lava so that she can use her freeze breath to freeze the lava. It works just the last minute.
Phoebe thanks Max for standing by her side and trying to save her.
Phoebe Thunderman is very friendly, unless you catch her with her twin brother, Max. She is very smart and is willing to take the chance of living a double life (as a normal student and a superhero). Also, being a superhero and living a regular life does not stop her either. She still works to accomplish everything she can. She exceeds her best friend, Cherry, and tries to do everything in an orderly fashion.
Phoebe Thunderman may look like your average girl next door, but her superpowers will make you think the opposite! But that doesn't stop her from trying to fit in. She's a responsible, straight-A student who tries to play by the "no-powers" rule... unless her aspiring villain and twin brother Max forces her to do otherwise!
Phoebe is an intellectual. She loves math, and is a tad bit nerdy. She’s trying to navigate having a social life, dealing with boys (she has a crush), friends, and hiding her superpowers, including freeze breath, telekinesis, and other fun stuff.
