[mpfxzkvq] Blowing up a black hole

To demonstrate how insignificant the Death Star is when compared to the Force, Darth Vader casually blows up a black hole.

One would think, the next thing more impressive than blowing up a planet would be a star, but stars often blow themselves up naturally, so it would be nothing "new" (pun intended).

Unlike a star, a planet is inert.  The energy for the explosion must be completely supplied externally.  A black hole is a more difficult inert object to blow up, Beyond The Impossible.  (Or is it?)

Not sure what the result of the explosion would be: lots of little black holes?  Ordinary matter?  The black hole's mass converted to radiation?
