All these people kept coming with, like, casseroles. I finally had to tell them all to go away. You know, 'cause nothing says "I 'm sorry" like a tuna casserole.
— Max Miller to Sam and Dean

Max Miller was one of the special children and could move things with his mind. He is the very first special child encountered by Sam and Dean.

Background[edit | edit source]

Season 1[edit | edit source]

After experiencing premonitions of a man being killed, Sam and a skeptical Dean are drawn towards the Miller family. Max, who developed his powers approximately six months before the Winchesters meet him, has a strong control of his ability - telekinesis. He is using the ability to murder the people who abused him as a child. After killing his father and uncle, he turned on his stepmother, only to be stopped by Dean and Sam. After Max sees the gun Dean carries, he attempts to use it to kill his stepmother.

Max eventually turned the gun on himself and committed suicide.[1]


Powers and Abilities[edit | edit source]

  • Telekinesis: Max is a special child, like Sam, thus he gained his powers from being fed the demon Azazel's blood. Max used his powers to kill his father and uncle. He later telekinetically levitated a gun and shot himself in the head.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • His mother died, pinned to the ceiling above his crib, presumably in the same manner that Mary died above Sam's crib. He had an abusive childhood.
  • His response to Sam suggests Max's powers started at the same time as Sam's - 'six, seven months ago'.
  • Max is featured in the Anime Series under the same name.
