Someone who puts bombs in people's heads in order to control their actions is a villain.
Is a hero that is responsible for villainous acts in service of a great good really a villain?
It depends on how the narrative portrays the person. In this case, the narrative portrays the person as a villain. Are you not getting this or are you just playing devil's advocate?
I get it, but if they wished to use a hero as the antagonist, this is a way for this character to justify his or her actions.
