May I ask why you should not a have a villain you can feel sympathy for?

Because you're supposed to have clear-cut villains and heroes in pulp. If you have villains you can sympathize with, it makes the hero look like a bully when he beats the crap out of them. At least in this type of fiction, you have to have morally reprehensible characters/forces; it makes it all the more rewarding when they lose.
