Since Roy is calling himself Red Arrow now, who should use his old moniker "Arsenal"? I was thinking he could give it to Conner Hawke, since he's currently sans code-name.

Actually it's Brad Meltzer that's calling Roy the Red Arrow. Roy should still be Arsenal. "Red Arrow" lacks imagination. Of course there's a lot of that in DCU lately. Having him just use the bow and arrows is a waste. Over the last few years Winick expanded Roy's character a lot in the Outsiders. This Red Arrow moniker sets the character back decades. Roy moved out of Ollie's shadow a long time ago. Arsenal utilized everything at his disposal as a weapon. In a fight only Batman should be more dangerous. But Meltzer's Roy Harper seems like he gave up the Speedy identity last week. But this doesn't surprise me. Meltzer usually throws away a character's history to suit his own taste. Just look at the awful Identity Crisis. I'm glad he's off the JLA.
