Well, for its galaxy. A supermassive black hole has been found which has a mass equivalent to 7,000,000,000 suns but inside a normal sized galaxy. It has roughly one tenth of the mass of its galaxy compared to the norm of 0.2 to 0.5 percent normally seen.

"This finding may call most current models of galaxy formation into question, scientists added."

Fortunately for us it is about 22 billion light years away and presumably heading away into the sunset.
