Damn, this was supposed to be a short list. Bear with my long post, though. I don't speak for everyone, but I've seen enough hints to think I'm speaking for a great many fans here, and I think I can articulate some things more clearly than most.
First, why did I like your WW/Big Boss video so much? Well for me, the "checklist" for this video goes something like this:
Male Villain(s): yes
Display of "super-ness" from the heroine: yes
Legitimate physical defeat (as opposed to a forced surrender a la chloro/krypto/hostage situation): eh, I'll give it to you for this vid. Although I do think of the lasso as kind of a cop out (see below), the "Atom" got it off of you fair and square, which makes it infinitely better than yet another chloro capture
Hot model: oh HELL yes!
Resistance, fighting back, not caving in: yes
Forced sex: not in this vid (I've almost never seen you do sex with a male, but DAMN it's hot!)
Objectification during fight, either verbal or physical: Not really... I don't see a lot of this, but just something as simple as saying, "Man I can't wait to slide my dick between those tits," while your squaring off goes a long way for me. It's a total disregard for the heroine's status in a way that specifically disrespects her as a woman, and of course is overtly sexual. This is orders of magnitude better than, "I've got you now," "You'll never defeat me," "You've walked right into my trap," "My power is too great for you," blah blah blah. Reaching out and grabbing ass or giving a tittie twister, cupping the boobs, grabbing the face, planting a kiss, etc. just demonstrates dominance in a way that leaves you open to continuing the fight, getting mad about the offense, coming back harder, etc. Really effective way to make the videos hotter for me.
Humiliation: yes (spanking/groping is lightweight, but still good!)
The most important thing I want to see, though, is a physical fight/wrestling with male villain who physically dominates the already established SUPERheroine: I rarely see this. I remember each video clearly: Rye's "SuperNightmare," dominatedheroines's "Katrina," sooperhero's "Millenia," are really the only ones that establish this dynamic fully, though some of your stuff and Alex Bettinger's comes close. Early (really early!) punishedheroines and supermercedes videos sometimes hit the nail close to the head, but the production in those days was nothing like it is now.
The difference between say, "Katrina," and your hogtied shoot, which for me is and probably will be the best superheroine peril vid ever made (epic!) DESPITE lacking my most important criterion, is that Katrina establishes herself in the video as a powerful heroine, kicking the crap out of some henchman at the beginning. You can see her confidence after she beats the villain, and you can tell that she feels invincible. Then, with no kryptonite or choloform, the BOSS villain shows up and her world starts to fall apart. Compare this to the hogtied vid where you show up, are promptly chloroformed, dominated, and knocked out. This is still hot as hell because you're a bombshell and really sell the scene, plus Matt (?) REALLY understands how a dominant male should act, and with your WW costume we already have the preconditioned ideas about your ability as a heroine. Still, it would have been much hotter if you had taken out some villains at the beginning of the vid, and then been knocked out after a fight, tackle, wrestling or otherwise using a sleeper hold or something, instead of chloroform.
To me, the chloro is like cheating, and an admission that you are more powerful than the villain, which defeats the entire purpose for me. For me, the point of the superheroine peril movie is for the heroine to suddenly realize, "Oops, I thought I was unbeatable, but I just bit off more than I can chew. I picked the WRONG guy to fuck with." That's one reason it's so hot for me to see heroines trying to run away or escape, like Paris did in her WW "fight to the death" video for Rye.
So really, even in this short vid, you hit the vast majority of things I'm looking for. I will say that I wouldn't have bought it with a female villainess unless there was a male villain for a majority of the time. A gag would have made it WORSE for me, because I like your voice, and really, how can you show resistance while hogtied if you're gagged?! I understand that for some making you totally submissive is the point, but for me that's like ditching the costume entirely: a gripe I have with some of your "best" (my favorite) stuff, like the hogtied shoot and your first long feature from christinabound, if I recall correctly (WW vs. Mr. G or something?). I want the heroine to experience fear, hope for a positive outcome, and try her best to make that happen, not accept her fate at the first sign of trouble. For me, the role reversal DOESN'T WORK if the woman is weak-willed, easily cowed or too submissive. Honestly, I'm not even attracted to that kind of woman in daily life, so I won't accept it in fantasy!
A last note about the voice, since I'm a musician. It's really, really important to me, and I think you use yours better than ANY other model in this genre, without exception and without question. The Japanese videos at akiba-web and akiba-heroine really do hit many of my criteria most of the time, but there's a cultural difference in the way they react vocally to domination or exertion. It's not hot. Maybe it's more realistic that way. I don't know. But I saw a very realistic rape scene in a movie (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo EDIT: IT WAS ACTUALLY "THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE"), and I was surprised that it turned my stomach, since I eat that stuff up in fantasy.
The tendency to have the girls go all subbie for the majority of the Japanese videos also make them all second-rate: despite the fight scenes, despite the ridiculous production values, despite the costumes, etc. If they put YOU or Paris in one of those, it would be on everyone's top ONE list! Even Akira Lane, whose voice is a bit squeaky for my taste (I'm only talking about my preference for a smokier voice here, not saying she sounds bad), totally gets the idea of resisting and fighting her captors and being vocal about it. And of course responding sexually with something like a sexual sound instead of the grunts and shrieks we get from the Japanese videos.
Sorry for the STUPID long post, but I figured I may as well put my thoughts out there if producers care to read.
