Is Coptic Catholic the same as Roman Catholic?
Coptic Catholic Church, Eastern Catholic church of the Alexandrian rite in Egypt, in communion with Rome since 1741, when Athanasius, a Miaphysite (acknowledging only one nature in the person of Christ) Coptic bishop, became a Roman Catholic.
How are Coptic popes chosen?
The first step - which must take place within seven days after the death of the Coptic pope - is the appointment of a regent, chosen by the Holy Synod (the assembly of Coptic bishops) to lead the Church until it chooses a successor. Thus, the 119th Coptic pope will be named just four months from now.

It is the position of the Orthodox Church that it has never accepted the pope as de jure leader of the entire church. All bishops are equal as Peter, therefore every church under every bishop (consecrated in apostolic succession) is fully complete (the original meaning of catholic).
