^You want things to be the same as always? Yet keep things dynamic? Contradictory!
Not contradictory, just challenging. It's the same challenge writers always face when working within an established format: Keep things dynamic and expanding without violating the artistic integrity of the core concept. These type of re-imaginings are a lazy avoidance of that. Something like this might be an interesting "What If" or "Imaginary Story," but that's all.
