Paris is the capital city of France.
World War II
Capture of Paris
During World War II, Paris was captured by the Wehrmacht soldiers who would triumphantly goose-step through the city. The fall of Paris became an object of mockery among the Allied troops, often asking how many Frenchmen would take to defend Paris, answering that none knew, as they never tried.
In 1943, Johann Schmidt and his HYDRA division went rogue, separating themselves from the Nazi regime. According to one of HYDRA's maps, Paris was among the European cities planned to be invaded following the destruction of the United States.
Hunt of Bruce Banner
Paris was one of the potential locations of Bruce Banner after his track was lost following an incident in the jungles of South America. Thaddeus Ross, responsible for the hunt of Banner, figured that he could be anywhere in the world, even in Paris painting landscapes.
Group of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents stationed at Paris was tasked with the retrieval of a Chitauri Neural Link that had come into the possession of the international criminal Vanchat following the Battle of New York. Grant Ward infiltrated a restaurant disguised as a waiter in order to scan and replicate a set of fingerprints.
Despite the Rising Tide published the location of the item, Ward entered into Vanchat's safehouse and used the fingerprints to access a hidden safe behind a fireplace, retrieving the item. Ward had to fight two guards, but was able to defeat them and access the rooftop, where he was extracted via helicopter.
Schemes Against Rand
To be added
With the knowledge of the Darkhold, Holden Radcliffe and Aida began perfecting the Framework. Upon completion, the code had become so powerful that it had to be processed on devices from all around the world. Part of the data was transmitted to a defense server in Paris.
