In the anime

AG097 - Gaining Groudon
The kids are floating on logs at sea when a red submarine appears beneath them, belonging to Team Magma. At the floating Magma base, the kids are taken into custody. Team Magma Leader Maxie explains to them about how he has the Blue Orb in his possession, allowing him to control Groudon. Unfortunately, the Legendary Pokémon they currently have in their possession is Kyogre.
A disguised Shelly of Team Aqua sneaks away and unlocks Kyogre, setting off an alarm. Kyogre awakens and busts out of the floating base, causing it to begin sinking. In the chaos, the kids try to grab the orb, and Pikachu accidentally absorbs it and goes berserk.
Ash is separated from his friends and attacked by a Team Magma member. He meets what appears to be another member of Team Magma - but it's really Lance of the Elite Four in disguise! Lance has also sent his red Gyarados to go help Ash's friends.
Both Teams Magma and Aqua end up on Monsu Island, along with Team Rocket, who wants to steal both Legendary Pokémon. Of course, it's no good, as Kyogre is under the control of the Red Orb, which is currently in Team Aqua's possession...
AG098 - The Scuffle of Legends
Team Magma and Team Aqua continue to fight on Monsu Island. The Red Orb, which can control Kyogre, is currently held by the Team Aqua Leader Archie. Archie merges with the orb and now crazed as a result, orders Kyogre to sink the island.
Everyone tries to flee into the ruins on the island, while Lance challenges Kyogre with his Dragonite. Dragonite's Hyper Beam is not strong enough to stop the ancient Pokémon.
Team Rocket still wants to steal Groudon, restrained inside the Team Aqua base. Instead, they are attacked by a possessed Pikachu, who awakens Groudon. The giant Ground-type leaves the base and begins a massive battle with Kyogre, but the two are evenly matched.
The kids find a way to distract Kyogre, which gives Groudon the opportunity to defeat the Water-type. The orbs leave the bodies of Archie and Pikachu, floating up in the air until they merge and then disintegrate. Archie and Pikachu both come back to their senses, while the two Legendary Pokémon retreat back into their ancient slumber.
In the games
In Pokémon Ruby, Maxie leads Team Magma in awakening Groudon to expand the land masses of the world; in Pokémon Sapphire, he opposes Archie, who is trying to awaken Kyogre to expand the world's seas.
In Pokémon Emerald, he is the evil Team Magma dictator who wants to awaken Groudon and control it to destroy Team Aqua and expand the land masses of the world. His first plan was to steal a Meteorite from Professor Cozmo and use it to power a machine located at Mt. Chimney. This machine would then cause the volcano to erupt and further his dream to expand the landmass.

In the Pokémon Special manga
Maxie does not have any fixed headquarters and moves his locations from cave to cave across Hoenn. He rules Team Magma like a barbarian gang but he makes them more elusive; because of this, Team Magma was able to steal the Scanner from the Abandoned Ship and both Red Orb and Blue Orb. However, the latter was stolen by Shizuku's Volbeat for Archie.
After Rayquaza halted the fight between Groudon and Kyogre, Maxie and Archie went insane and attempted to destroy everyone who had interferred in their plan: the Elite 4, the Gym Leaders, the Regis, even their own members. It was Maxie's Houndoom that burned Norman with it's flames.
