Halle Berry wants to hang up her superhero costume.

After playing Storm in three “X-Men” movies and the title role in 2004’s “Catwoman,” the 39-year-old actress says: “I think I’m done. I’m fresh out of superheroes at this point.”

Berry was in Mexico City Monday for a screening of her new film, “X-Men: The Last Stand,” which opens May 26.

The movie is the third in a series based on the X-Men comic books about mutant superheroes and villains whose special abilities make them feared by the world’s human majority.

Berry said she wanted to depict a strong woman in her portrayal of Storm, who has the ability to control the weather.

From Bond Girl to Catwoman to her historic Oscar for "Monster's Ball," the actress has done it all.

The actress said she fought to keep faithful to the comic book version of Storm, which she felt was stronger and more interesting than in the original screenplay.

“If I’m only on camera for five minutes, that’s fine, but let it be five meaningful minutes,” said Berry, who won an Oscar for 2001’s “Monster’s Ball.”

“It’s not fun to play a woman that does nothing.”
