I was not referring to his motivations. Those were fine. I was more talking about what he does and how it fits(or doesn't) in the plot.

The performance the way he was written ... It would be asinine to not consider him in the elite echelon of comic book villains
Not necessarily. Especially if you give large credence to the afore-mentioned plot and how he fits into it, as I and many others do.

...popular opinion and oscar alone pretty much easily put him at the top of the pyramid

I don't put much stock in these things.

2018 Movies so far:
1. Incredibles 2 (A)/2. Avengers: Infinity War (A)/3. Chappaquiddick (A-)/4. Ready Player One (B+/A-)/5. Upgrade (B+)/6. DeadPool 2 (B+)/7. Black Panther (B+)/8. Rampage (C+)
