I think the best way to do it is how they're doing it now. Every few years or so a new creative team swoops in and re-imagines the mythos. Similar to how every few years a new artists pens Batman. Otherwise you risk running the character into the ground. And I don't think the writers should be slaves to continuity.
I am open to a live action television series though. That would be insane. Then you can do season long arcs and stand alone stories in all their glory.
Hmmm, batman series on HBO? Sounds interesting.
