Like Richard, MIB is ageless and probably cannot die. Therefore, to escape this eternal "prison" of life, he must destroy the island. It is the only way he (and probably the other candidates) can die and be free of Jacob's prison. May be why the island is at the bottom of the ocean during the season premiere.
