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 - is Max's twin sister, who he usually annoys and aggravates. The two generally don't get along, however underneath it how, 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, he drops his tounge and fell instantly in love to Tara. When Phoebe invites the Campbells 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.

Nora Thunderman- is Max's little sister. It is shown in Winter Thunderland that Max, even though he denies it, really cares about her when he sees how she would end up in the future if he were to ruin her and the rest of the family's Christmas. In the end he does what is right, and gives her a white Christmas.
