Paris is the capital and largest city of France. It is situated on the river Seine, in northern France, at the heart of the Île-de-France region. An important settlement for more than two millennia, Paris is today one of the world's leading business and cultural centres, and its influences in politics, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science, and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the world's major global cities.

In the continuity of the Doctor Who mythos, Paris was the central setting of the 1979 serial "City of Death", a four-chapter story-arc which involved the Fourth Doctor (played by Tom Baker). In the story, an alien menace named Scaroth attempted to finance the creation of a time machine by stealing the infamous Mona Lisa from the Louvre. The Doctor and his companion Romana teamed up with a brutish private investigator named Duggan to combat Scaroth's efforts and return the Mona Lisa to its proper place (while at the same time saving all life on Earth as we know it and protecting the time stream).

In comics Edit

Paris was the principal setting of the 1992 Elongated Man comic book limited series. The Elongated Man (Ralph Dibny) and his wife, Sue went to Paris for the Pan-European Economic Conference. Along the way, the Elongated Man prevented the assassin Copperhead from murdering an important French finance minister. He nearly captured the villain, but suddenly Warp appeared and transported Copperhead to safety. A strange super-powered terrorist named L'Escargot raided the conference and killed the French ambassador, Choux. Ralph sprang into action, but it was Bito Wladon who stopped L'Escargot's rampage with undulating waves of sonic force from his Sonigun. [2]
