I'm hopelessly out of touch with everything.

When exactly is "now"?

I'm having enough trouble following the characters whose books I get. I can't afford to subscribe to everything and there is no comic shop within walking distance.

I assume Bart will come back to life. But I would have assumed the same about Barry if I had been reading -- and able to follow -- everything in 1985. Marvel and DC kill characters to increase sales and then bring them back to life to increase sales.

Barry may yet be resurrected. Yes, 22 years is a long time. Compared to how long Bucky was dead, that's yesterday.

Speaking of right after 52, I think Roy Harper is SO much better for the JLA that Oliver Queen has ever been. I'll take a drug addict in recovery over a jack ass any day. Being in recovery myself, I know that I am still sincere and I care. A jack ass is just a jack ass.

Thanks for the answer.

Like, now. If you pick up a comic published in this month, this is the current status quo. More technically, the current status quo was established as of JLA (current series) #12.

There have been statements that Bart's story is not yet over. Whether that means a resurrection or just some serious follow-up on his death remains to be seen.

I'm not sure any super-powered character will stay dead forever.

No problem.
