YMMV / Supermassive Black Hole A*

  • Art Evolution: The comic itself became more realistic and move towards bright color instead of black-and-white. Compare this to this.
  • Arc Fatigue: So far, Vero Plank has been set aside for Selenis' story since episode 10.
  • Best Known for the Fanservice: Starting from Episode 11, after the death Selenis' 32nd clone, the comic's focus on Selenis Zea had provided the comic with a sex appeal thanks to her attractive appearance ranging from her form-fitting space suit to clone nudity.
  • Designated Hero: Despite having Pet the Dog moments, Selenis' status as a character with little moral code and selfish desire for immortality through perfect cloning technology made her somewhat hard to root for.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Due to Selenis' willingness to obtain any means to obtain cloning technology, be it fundings or the artifacts themselves, her list of questionable methods has been quite many. As she stated, she had already done much worse during her centuries-long search but the below are what happened in the comic.
    • Her progenitor's termination of the first clone in Episode 14 due to failures in memory imprinting even though she is already shown to have emotions.
    • Before the prequel strip, Episode 13, she seduced and killed an Honest Corporate Executive in the universe, just to obtain fundings.
  • Narm: During its early run, Supermassive Black Hole A* had an art shift to a darker, Film Noir art style. While some characters' looks were tweaked slightly, others weren't, resulting in dramatic lighting for a character whose nose is bigger than the entire rest of his head. While some issue with the artwork still remains, the recent comics had been on the more realistic side in terms of the character design.
