Is he dead, alive or something else?

Alive bro...hope to see him soon.

He's alive on earth prime, living in his parents basement reading comic books. He recently fought a black lantern Alexander Luthor over in adventure comics. He's powerless though.

@nightwing91:  Any idea what issue that is or are you just pulling my leg?

I don't understand. How is he powerless now?

I don't think he's powerless. If I remember right, he was sent to earth prime after legion of 3 worlds. He still had his powers during the Blackest Night when Alexander Luthor and everyone else he had killed came for him.

Didnt they have some kind of sappy ending in blackest night with him crying and the writers deciding to leave him alone or something.

he isn't powerless...his powers were sapped at the end of Lo3W's and they even showed his eyes glowing read at the end of the last issue and in Adventure Comics when Black Lantern Alexander Luthor came to Earth Prime he transmuted Superboy's clothes into his power suit....Superboy-Prime is alive and well on Earth Prime and has his complete powers

@JesterKing: im pretty sure alexnder gave him a  power suit that fed him sun light, so his emotions would be broader is something along the lines he said.
 

@karrob:

and they did with the girl coming down wearing a black lantern ring detecting hope.
 
@danhimself: I didn't mean totally powerless, obviously as a solar battery, he'd take time to charge up. We don't know how long cause Alexander put him in the suit. Obviously his cells will always allow him to absorb and process sunlight.But at the start of Adventure comics he didn't have powers hence his parents driving him to the comic store instead of flying,  the ending to LO3W didn't make sense , cause doesn't heat vision require more solar radiation then flying its supermans most taxing power. I figured that was just an artist detail to show he'd be coming back.
