Late BEATLE John Lennon is portrayed as a hero of "Superman" proportions in new movie THE US VS JOHN LENNON, according to his widow Yoko Ono. The film, which is released in New York and Los Angeles today (15SEP06), is pieced together from newsreels and rarely-seen home videos of the musician, which document his fierce peace campaign against the Vietnam War. But although Ono admits her tragic husband doesn't come across as "a saint", the film is instrumental in detailing his fight against the US government. She says, "This story, which is the true story and a very important story, has not been discussed so much as the tabloid thing. I don't think he's coming out as a saint. "The struggle that he went through confronting these big powers, it's almost like a very interesting Superman kind of thing - bad against good."
