    We don't know, we do know some super massive rogue black holes may be all that remains of their host galaxy.

    I suppose enough of such galaxies collapse and the black holes join they could grow to  a universal singularity.

    Might just result in another big bang and presto,,a new universe.

    Why Create a Universe only to be eaten by black hole. that is the reverse of the Big Bang theory.This would imply that the theory of Black holes is flawed.

    No.

    There isn't enough density of mass and the universe, even including dark matter...  the universe is expanding "increasingly fast" according to all the most recent data.

      it does not increase, it only travels away - from creator - much larger than any smbh - trillions smbh's, with different speeds different objects. Any later created is larger, and most often spit with higher speed. On they way, may meet other creators and their 'things'.

    Possibly yes, probably no.

    The black hole could absorb matter until all the matter in the universe is absorbed. Then space itself could be absorbed but there is bound to be a point when the black hole would explode, because there must be a limit to the degree of compression that material can withstand.

    Black holes gravity is no different than any stars gravity when you are far away. They don't suck things in. They just hold onto things that get too close.

    Eventually as they eat each other and grow to take over a Galaxy

    the galaxy could attract each other with the gravity of their mega Black holes

    They could all come together to become a great Crunch

    What happens after is anyone's guess

    Either a Big Bounce or a gradual fade away

    Then where would we be ?

    New calculations show that (if theory holds true after peer review) we will have a big bounce and form a new universe.

    Eventually that is likely to happen, kind of. All the baryonic matter in the Universe will end up being part of black holes. But that doesn't involve them expanding infinitely because the Universe isn't itself infinite.

    No is the short answer, there's not enough mass to make that big of a black hole.
