Alright, can anyone give me an update of some characters....
-Is Bruce Wayne really dead? And when is he coming back?
-When is Supes coming back from New Krypton? And will they really keep 100k Kryptonians around? Seems to take away from the uniqueness of Supes.
-Quick status of....
Hawkman...Is he back with Hawkgirl?
Is Arthur Curry ever returning (or did he) as Aquaman?
Atom (Ray Palmer)..I heard he returned and now is gone???
I heard Jonn Jonzz was killed...But, is that true?
alot of people seem to have lost track of whats happening in dc the poor selling final crisis didn't help
the only dc series I've kept track of is green lantern
Let me crack my knuckles and try to tackle some of this. Keep in mind, though, that a lot of what you're asking is based off of ongoing storylines, and thus have no resolution as of right now.
the Batman part. It's kind of sketchy on Bruce himself being believed in the general public as being dead. They've shown a grave site and Black Hand has messed with a corpse, but Hush gave himself plastic surgery to look like Bruce in the "Heart of Hush" storyline, and it's been toyed that sightings of Bruce have been seen, in this case Hush.
Bruce himself is alive and well durring Cave-Man times, trying to find a way back. As for Batman, he's now Dick Grayson with Damian Wayne as Robin.
Superman's in space for the foreseeable future with New Krypton. He's a part of Zod's army, training the New Krypton army on how to use their powers properly, as well as trying to convince them of a less-physical attempt at policing. Also trying to add some Earthly wisdom to the old Kryptonian ways. And, yeah, there's a whole planet of Kryptonians.
Justice League: Cry For Justice" mini out next month.
Wonder Dog killed and ate Marvin and mauled Wendy. I wish I was joking. DC is dark, man, really really dark and nasty nowadays.
The Black Lanterns look like zombies to me.
Kobra killed babies on live TV.
And stay out of Riverdale!
It's kinda why people are excited about Blackest Night. They view it as "Yay! They're Going To Bring Back (insert name here)!" But, I mean, come on. This is DC. For every one person brought back, about five others are going to die.
Or raped or tortured or cannibalized or something. Seriously, sometimes DC seems to be actively trying to scare or gross me out of reading superhero comics. Somebody should go to Didio's house and look in his crawlspace.
And stay out of Riverdale!
So much for him being the last Son of Krypton then.Superman's in space for the foreseeable future with New Krypton. He's a part of Zod's army, training the New Krypton army on how to use their powers properly, as well as trying to convince them of a less-physical attempt at policing.

What are "Black Lanterns?
Not it will most likely do any good, but I encourage any interested parties to sign this petition.

Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death
As for Tim Drake? It's not been confirmed, but it's pretty much guaranteed that he's now using the Red Robin costume from Kingdom Come, that Jason used shortly during Countdown. If it is him, according to the solicitations for the upcoming Red Robin series, he believes Bruce is still alive and is on a search to find him.
Both storylines are still ongoing. World of New Krypton doesn't end until January. It's been all but confirmed that next year's going to have a giant Superman event. Last I heard, it was rumored to be a war with New Krypton. If true, that puts New Krypton going on for at least another year.
As far as Batman, Bruce hasn't been seen since the last page of the last issue of Final Crisis. The cave drawings he did showed up in a recent issue of Red Robin, but that's about it. They did have a reanimated corpse of Batman show up briefly in the most recent Blackest Night, as well as what looks like a Batman coming out of a Lazarus pit on the cover of January's Batman and Robin issue. But I'm still lost on how there's even a corpse at all, so I'm probably not the best person to explain that one.
Thanks for the update. Looks like they plan on dragging this out.
