What makes a villain a worthy foe?

Is it the more evil he/she is, the better?
Or perhaps it's the sneaky, underhandedness of a villain?
Maybe, it's the villain who always seems to be one step ahead?

What do you think?

I think another interesting category of villain is the one who is clearly in opposition to the hero, but who is NOT plain evil or sneaky. The character may be understandable; perhaps even sympathetic. Think "Phantom of the Opera", or Shelley's "Frankenstein". When you look at the villain, and you can see a little of yourself in the monster, it becomes even more chilling.
