Dead.

That's what I thought, but the Wikipedia had something different.

I was wondering this myself. DC giveth (Wally and Kyle and Barbara Gordon are all around!) and taketh away (Kon-El, Tim Drake, and Bart Allen are all MIA).

I might be wrong on that, but I believe I heard he is out of commission at the moment. Like... he's BELIEVED dead, but either way, not currently in any title. I'd love to be told I'm wrong, though.

Tim drake isn't dead. He is being held prisoner by Mr Oz. Though everyone thinks he is

Superboy. Same thing. Alive and secretly works for the Oracle (cosmic being). Everyone thinks he is dead

That's cool. I knew about Tim. And the only references I had seen in comic about Kon were from other comics, so that's why I thought he was dead, and I had heard it from somewhere else. Then the few sites I had read all said something different.

With Bart it doesn't say where's he's at now.

The Tim, Kon, and Bart they had in nu52 were drastically changed. Tim was changed the least but even then Drake isn't even his real name.

Yeah, I hated the new versions. Along with WonderGirl. Also where is she?  I was thinking they seem to bringing the old feel to characters, and started wondering where these newer versions went.

Yeah, but they aren't around. That's what I'm getting at; there's no book to currently read them in.

DC needs to stop jerking itself off with its own history, constantly regurgitating old characters. One of the advantages of a reboot should be the chance to rid the company of the massive overproliferation of 'clone' characters, particularly as junior sidekicks. We don't need more heroes with the same or derived powersets.
ONE Flash. ONE Superman. ONE Wonder Woman. ONE Green Arrow. Etc. That should be the plan. Deviate only in exceptional circumstances. (I'll leave the Batfamily out of this, somewhat, as given that they have no powers, it only makes sense that proteges would have similar skill sets.) 
But seriously, why can't heroes have proteges or sidekicks with different powers? I know that there are some beloved 'clone' characters, but that's mostly on account of a lot of time having been put into developing their personalities. If we just bite the bullet and kill them all off, writers can invest in new characters with unique powers who will also become beloved in time.
I would just kill off all the clones and/or change their powers to be unique.
Kon-El would go. Mon-El would go. There would be no Daxamites or other Kryptonians that show up in my universe ever. Supergirl would be re-written with some kind of watered-down Kryptonian powerset. (She could still be Kal's cousin--perhaps half-Kryptonian). Arsenal/Speedy would be gone. I might keep Black Adam, but there would never be a Mary Marvel or CM Jr. There would be a single Flash--Barry Allen. Wally and Bart would never exist. Not as guys with exactly the same powerset, at least. Donna Troy and the new Wondergirl would both never exist again. Green Lanterns are a Corps, so there would be more than one Lantern--BUT I'd make it so guys are good at doing different things with the ring, and most Lanterns would seem rather unique. Some make certain kinds of constructs, others are good at self-amping, others can generate TP or TK with the ring, others make basic shields and generate power blasts--really well, but they don't do constructs well. Etc. (And there would only be GREEN Lanterns. The entire emotional spectrum idea would be erased from continuity. Red, Blue, Yellow Lanterns--WTF?)
Fucking DC makes me crazy sometimes. Get some new ideas!

Eh, my favorite DC characters are the legacies, by-and-large. If DC did that, I'd probably never read a DC title again.

Same. PB's idea is bad.
