    They continue to grow, eventually swallowing all of the material in their host galaxy.
     They exceed the maximum allowable mass for a black hole and burst apart.
     They continue to exist but no longer cause as much radiation to be emitted.
     They exhaust all of their mass-energy through Hawking radiation and decay away, eventually ceasing to exist.
     They continue to exist, steadily increasing their energy output.
