Megan Brooke Russo
Megan Brooke Russo is the paternal aunt of Alex, Justin and Max, and estranged sister of Jerry and Kelbo. Her personality is similar to Alex as she is characterized as lazy, sarcastic, artistic and selfish, but more so than her niece. She despises her family because Jerry opted to give his powers to Kelbo, who was much less talented at magic, but Jerry stated that it was because Kelbo needed them more. Afterward, she cut all ties with her family and magic, then moved to a loft in Paris where she is a painter.
Megan only appears in "Retest" where Justin, Alex and Max try to convince her to retake the wizard competition. Not much is known about her history, but it's mentioned by Theresa in "Retest" that when Jerry gave his powers to Kelbo instead of Megan to marry Theresa (as mentioned in "Alex in the Middle" where wizards can't marry mere mortals), Megan became furious about it. As a result of her resentfulness, she threw Theresa's homemade empanadas off the terrace and hit a cop, resulting in a police record. She cut ties with the Russo family and moved away.
During her only appearance, Alex, Justin and Max visit her apartment to ask her to retake the wizard competition, but she refuses to take the retest. However, a lecture from Alex and Theresa may have left her with things to think over about her grudge.
During the episode when they go to meet Megan, they let Max take them there. However, he did not realize that the "Paris" they were referring to was actually Paris, France, and not Paris, Texas.
Similarities With Alex
Megan is like Alex in many ways. They are both lazy, artistic, they hold grudges and are aggressive. Both are the middle daughter of 2 different brothers. She has a little more of all of these traits than Alex does. Megan is also different from Alex and Alex will always stick together with her family, while Megan left and avoided her family after Jerry gave his wizard powers to Kelbo.
- Megan is Alex's relative-counterpart since she is the middle born child between very different brothers.
- It is shown in the episode "Retest" that Megan and her brothers, Jerry and Kelbo, are parallel in personalities to Alex, Justin, and Max respectively.
- As Jerry's children are wizards despite being born after he gave up his powers, it's highly likely that, if Megan had children in the future, they would also be wizards.
- It is briefly mentioned in one of the episodes by Jerry that when they were younger his friends were nice to him because his sister was good looking.
