Maxine Russo is Max as a female. This happened when Alex and Justin crossed spells and made Max a little girl. She shows up in six episodes. She still thinks and acts like Max, and even has some characteristics similar to Max such as foot stink, or as she calls it, "fink".

The cover-up story the Russo's came up with to explain Max's apparent disappearance and replacement with a little girl is that Maxine is their cousin from North Dakota, and Max and Maxine are part of the Russo family Cousin-Exchange Program.

  • She has only done 2 spells, unless you count flashing in and out.
  • She can beat nearly anyone in karate.
  • Maxine is a very good singer, unlike Max.

  • She still has a crush on Talia.
  • She is just a bit smarter but still has the same brain capacity, even though she is pretty good at karate we never know if Max is.
