Marvin Thomas is a main character on the Starz original crime drama Power Book III: Raising Kanan. He is portrayed by London Brown. Marvin is Lou-Lou and Raq's older brother, also the father of Jukebox and uncle to Kanan.

Marvin appears as one of the deuteragonists in season 1-2.

Marvin is the muscle for Raq's drug ring. What he lacks in smarts, he makes up for in volatile aggression. A hothead who is quick to spring to a fight. He's a mainstay of the family business, and as such, freely asserts his opinions on how to run things – though his ideas are typically dismissed by his smarter, shrewder younger siblings. His quick temper and loud personality make it difficult for his daughter Jukebox to connect with him, not that he would even notice her attempts.


Season 1

During Reaping and Sowing, Marvin meets with Symphony and tells him that he is aware of his interest in Raquel. After a tense talk, Marvin tells him that he is only making sure that Symphony has his sisters interest in heart.
