"One of the most" still undercuts Khan being the big bad in STID.
How so? If I say 'Pizza is one of my absolute favorite foods', it doesn't mean I love donuts any less. Something doesn't have to be the best/worst thing in the universe to be taken seriously.
You're not a character in film where the villain is pizza. Sometimes in film characters say things that contribute to tone, plot or theme of the film.
And just because I call someone 'one of' America's most wanted instead of just 'America's most wanted', you seriously think the audience is going to think 'Oh, well, if he's just one of, then this whole thing must be pretty tame. You can't be a bad-ass when you're just one of.'

I find that non-sensical logic.
