Badass: If single headedly taking on The Grey Ghoul (one of the most powerful and dangerous ghosts, who only his father had ever beaten) while the ghoul also was possessing Phoebe and thus had access to all her powers (and as they have the same powers that means Max didn't have a hope of being close to equal) and not only surviving but bouncing back from the defeat doesn't qualify him, not much will.
Black Sheep: Max is a supervillain in a family of superheroes.
Butt Monkey: Not always, but of the cast he does get hurt the most.
Breath Weapon: Just like his sister, Max has both Heat and Ice Breath.
Brilliant but Lazy: Max is every bit as smart as his sister (academically) but prefers to slack off in class, and work on his inventions rather than study.
Chick Magnet: A lot of girls find him attractive, including Phoebe's best friend.
Bumbling Dad: Has shades of this, although he's still savvy enough to know that when you have four kids there is always a good reason to shout. Whether or not his wife is any better though, is debatable.
Reluctant Retiree: Somewhat he voluntarily retired from crime fighting so his children could have a normal childhood, however he will leap at every half chance he gets and apparently still wears his suit under his clothes.
Lethal Chef: To the point her kids try and vandalise her cooking equipment.
Light 'em Up: She can produce and manipulate light as well as electricity and even simulate the effects of sparklers.
Reluctant Retiree: She is defiantly more willing than her husband, however she still dresses up in her superhero costume and plays a motion capture superhero video game with her husband, while the children are at school. Apparently quite often.
