    Well, you could say that J20gU3, but black holes are not a "phase" of a red supergiant star.

    No, no,... Supergiant stars are not necessarily red, they can also be white or blue. The sequence must be supergiant (whatever colour it has)-neutron star-black hole. It's interesting to know that the first generation of stars (Population III stars, that had zero-metallicity) were supergiants
