Sir! You asked the philosophical and psychological question of the decade!

All we know about Member is that they answer directly to Aleister... And that's a very vague description.
They follow

Yes, in chapter 44,5 the name "Professor" was on Xochitl's phone. So he definitely is leading their group. And they are under direct orders from Aleister, there shouldn't be anyone in between them and Aleister.

A suggestion? Maybe 'Professor' is sort of like a generic Alias of the leader... Like 'M'.

At the very least this would mean that Misaki's data is outdated... Or, because there is still one month before the events of vol 15, something could happen that changes the leadership of Member.

I think it would be better if he wasn't the professor, because this story really needs a solid plot twist.

Kamachi created a lot of confusion by adding lot of new people to a lot of contradicting roles.
And on top of that, all the existing characters are jumping in and out of the story most of the time without any good reasoning, which amplifies the "WTF is going on" feeling.
And what's worst he is clearing all of that confusion in a completly linear way, bit by bit every chapter.
Which, as for me, removes all the thrill / expectations of what could happen in next chapter, that's why I hope for something "big" to happen already.

If Gensei really is the the Professor, then we all know what will happen to him..

Gensei probably isn't the Professor, at least not the same- that's what I meant.

I'm pretty sure Gensei isn't MEMBER's professor, considering we have a illustration of the professor in Index Vol15 and that wasn't Gensei.

More importantly, I doubt Gensei would have worked on regrowing his hair.

Misaki is wearing some pretty lacy leggings. They were so showy that I almost forgot she was in a gym uniform.

I'm calling it now, Misaki wants access to the Misaka Network as a giant amplifier for her remote.

Wow, this manga really emphatizes how Mikoto's logic applies to everyone but herself.
Ironically she tells the same to Touma and gets a taste of her own soap .

Good chapter for one that was basically just exposition. I find myself liking Misaki more and more.

Half serious theory: Misaki wants to save Misaka's clones because she had some (though obviously much less than Misaka does) and they were killed.

I think Misaki wants to save the Misaka Sisters because in a way they are similar to herself. With the exception of Touma, the Sisters really can't trust anyone outside of their Network, much like Misaki can't trust anyone outside of hers.

With Misaki's distrustful attitude, I bet she experienced the Dark Side of Academy City more often than Mikoto did when she was growing up and met people who treated her as nothing more than a disposable stepping stone, much like how the participants of the Level 6 experiment treated the Sisters.

Well, Measure Heart does look somewhat similar to Misaki, also has a mental based ability and is a lower level than Misaki just like the Sisters are a lower level than Mikoto. We also don't know Measure Heart's name.

I dunno...There's something about Misakis motivations that doesn't sit right with me. Of course, I'd love to see Misaka kick Genseis arse, but not at the cost of giving Misaki the box seat to achieve her agenda.

I didn't realise until now how little we knew about Misaki. It'll be interesting to see what she does.
