Well to be honest, seeking the destruction of the entire world of non-mutants isn't very evil... oh wait!
Magneto's experiences surviving Nazi Germany, Auschwitz, and Vinnytsia would shape his outlook on the situation that mutants face in the Marvel Universe. Determined to keep such atrocities from ever being committed against mutant-kind, he is willing to use deadly force to protect mutants. He would believe that mutants ("Homo superior" ) will become the dominant life form on the planet and would set about either creating a homeland on Earth where mutants could live peacefully, or conquering and enslaving humanity in the name of mutantkind.
Magneto was an anti-hero, not an outright villain. His goals were selfless, the prevention of his kind becoming the victim of a Holocaust.

Sometimes he's a hero, sometimes he's an anti hero, sometimes he's a villain.
He's just a lot more awesome and a lot more well known as a villain.
He's already been nominated >_> Useless post is useless.
Some more nominations from me:
Kefka (FFVI) This psycho clown actually completed his goal and destroyed the world as it was.
Ultimecia (FFVIII) She messed with time, stole bodies and spoke like a true Mortal Kombat addict.
Seymour Guado (FFX) Manipulative religious leader/politician. Wants to be Sin and destroy everything. Bad hair.
Mojo Jojo (Powerpuff Girls) How can you NOT love a sciencey, villain-y chimp?
Xenahort (KH) Reputation destroying butthead. His name is an anagram for "No Heart". See? Evil.
And, without a doubt, the most annoying of villains:
Gaston of Beauty and the Beast.
His crimes include:
Saying women shouldn't read, get ideas or think.
Shallow, only sees outer appearances.
Taunts Beast regarding Belle's affections.
He has that little henchman, who adores him, does all of Gastons little things, cheers up a depressed Gaston, and then Gaston proceeds to regularly abuse the little midget.
Convinces an entire town to go kill Beast, playing with their need to protect their children and declaring Beast will eat the kids, when Beast has lived there for YEARS in secret.
Nicole does not like Gaston.
