Who's to say for certain that he is? Test tube brainwashing isn't the only way to implant a sleeper program like Roy had, and there's no particular reason why the one-armed redhead at the end of "Auld Acquaintance" has to be the original. This could just be The Light setting up to have a true cloned operative put into place in the hero community (one can never have too many contingency plans), and have the heroes do all the work of putting him there, as a bonus...

My guess is clone!Roy will change his name to Connor Hawke but stay as Red Arrow. That'd solve the problem of having two guys named Roy Harper, give the clone his own identity, and bring another Arrow family character onto the show.

Since Connor Hawke was....black and Asian and a relatively rare non-white superhero, Christ I'd really hope they don't go that route.

Ethnicity isn't even always the same as the comics in Young Justice as it is. See Artemis and Paula.
Connor is of mixed Asian, African, and European heritage (his mother was half Black and half Korean, and his father Ollie is white), and was originally depicted with Asiatic features, dark skin, and fair hair and eyes. However, this has not been consistently maintained across different artists and colorists, and when theGreen Arrow series was rebooted the character was depicted with European features and light skin (even though a childhood picture in the later Archer's Quest storyline depicted him with dark skin). Connor's original features were later restored with Dixon's Dragon Blood miniseries. He now appears to have a mix of Asian American and African facial features.

Still that'd seriously rub me the wrong way. Hopefully they don't pull that [nonsense].

In regards to Paula and Artemis, those INCREASED diversity, but changing Connor Hawke would be decreasing diversity, and taking an interesting character out of play because on Earth-16, since GA is more mature, Hawke would probably be a reminder of more shameful times when he was a playboy.

To what extent the clone even Roy Harper? We haven't seen him in his secret identity. If he's just Red Arrow, there won't be any confusion.
