He was PARAM BHAKT of Lord Shiva (in fact he is still believed to be the best worshiper of Lord Shiva) and had much more power than Lord Ram. however, as it happens with many, his EGO (AHANKAAR) killed him.

Good or Bad ....its just a point of View......
He Fought for Asuras......so to them he is their Fredom fighter and to others he is a Terror
Its not about capturing seeta and not raping her....he respected women....mat be he didnt want to tear up her modesty or he wasn't attracted to her ....
Its what karm you do with Ahankar decides what is bad or good in the eyes of the world.......
More the people you fight for or represent more right you can be Considered in this world......

I might be wrong......since its just a point of view :)

Though mythical, I consider him a good man. He was at least not so cruel to women like the so called hero Ram

Ravan is a symbol of bad things..and we never idolize him.. Those who are themselves bad, may make him an idol.

Ravan ek mahan pandeet tha. siv jee ka parm bhakt tha. uske uchharan kiya hua siv tandav aaj bhi hum uchharan karte hein. rakhyash hotehue bhi ek bramhan bhi tha wo. lekin krodh, ahankaar, aur atyachar to achhi nehin na. nirdosh praniyon par atyachar karna paap hai, chaal karke parai patni ko apaharan karna paap hai, chahe wo inshan ho ya rakhyash, agar achhai ka saath dega to achha hi kehelayega. burai ka saath denepar bura hi hoga. chahe wo kitni bhi mahan gyaani kyu na ho. gyaan ke upar parda daal ke jo agyan ki raah par chal padta hai wo agyani hi kehelata hai. nirdosh prani par atyachar kare to wo atyachari hi kehelata hai, chaal kapat kiya to kapti hi kehelayega. chori kiya to chor. aur ishwar ko pehechante hue bhi ishwar ko naa mane to wo sabse bada murkh kehelayega. yehi mera bichar hai.
