      The other formidable opponents mentioned operate in ways that influence
      only people and events on a minor scale. However, Moriarty operates in a
      way that shapes events on a global level. He is said to be the protector of
      the London/British underworld, in exchange for fee or other services. He is
      a mathematician who went to Cambridge, extremely athletic, and has friends
      in high places. He does his acts but no one can trace it back to him. In
      Holmes' own words 'He is akin to a spider weaving a web,and he has complete
      control over each of its strands'.
      May be that is why he is rated so highly.
