"The time has come. All journeys must end, but this one heralds a new beginning as well. All that has gone before has only served to give birth to this new day."
— Mata Nui
|Outside/alternate title||Journey's End Part 2: Rebirth|
"Rebirth" is the seventh issue of the BIONICLE Glatorian series of comic books. The issue concludes the series' two-part "Journey's End" arc and is the final first-generation BIONICLE comic. It was included alongside the March/April 2010 issue of LEGO Magazine.
Tahu Nuva steps onto Bara Magna, where he meets the Kanohi Ignika. The mask devolves him into his original form so that he can wear the Golden Armor which it begins to create. As Takanuva arrives to witness this, Teridax unleashes a beam of energy that scatters the Golden Armor pieces across the desert of Bara Magna. One piece lands near Gresh, who is being confronted by a group of Skrall.
Teridax and Mata Nui resume their battle above Bara Magna. Mata Nui attempts to convince his foe that he cannot dominate the beings on Bara Magna. Teridax charges a blast of gravity energy in his palm, deciding to destroy Bara Magna instead.
Meanwhile, Takanuva struggles against two Rahkshi of Heat Vision. The Toa of Light is able to escape with a piece of the Golden Armor by using his light power to create an illusion of himself attempting to escape, causing the Rahkshi to use their powers on each other.
Nektann managed to obtain the shield piece of the Golden Armor, and Tahu is locked in combat with the Skakdi warlord. When Tahu is taunted by Nektann, he displays the wisdom he had gained over the course of his life, keeping calm and remaining focused. Nektann eventually tries to strangle Tahu, who retaliates by melting the Skakdi’s armor. Tahu then knocks out (while taking the shield) the immobilized Skakdi.
Before Teridax can release the blast of Gravity he has charged, Mata Nui lunges desperately at the Makuta, diverting the attack. Aqua Magna and Bota Magna are struck by the blast, and are drawn toward Bara Magna.
Gresh launches a hurricane that catches some of the Skrall, and retrieves a piece of the Golden Armor. With all the pieces of the armor gathered, Tahu dons them, immediately unleashing them across the desert of Bara Magna, killing thousands of Kraata and deactivating the Rahkshi. Makuta staggers at feeling the loss of his creations, giving Mata Nui a slight upper hand. At the opportune time, Mata Nui dives at Teridax's robot body, shoving him into the path of a rock fragment that splintered from Aqua Magna. The rock fragment strikes him in the head, destroying the core systems of his body and killing Teridax.
Mata Nui, looking down at the dead body, reflects on his brother. Using the remaining power in his ancient body, Mata Nui restores the planet of Spherus Magna with life. The robot's strength is now expired, and it crumbles to the ground.
The residents of the Matoran Universe exit the massive robot, and believe that the Great Spirit has died. However, Mata Nui's spirit was drawn back into the Ignika and the inhabitants of Spherus Magna and the Matoran Universe watch as Mata Nui gives his parting words to the people before returning to the mask. As Kiina questions whether Mata Nui is now truly dead, Tahu reveals he is not, but reminds her the best way to honor him would be to make the world the way it should be; he calls for the beings to join in constructing a world where the Matoran and Agori can live in peace together.
