Paris is the capital city of France, a country in the continent of Europe on Earth. Paris landmarks included the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe.
It is unknown what disaster destroyed Paris, but it is possible that it was the Xenomorph infestation of Earth depicted in the Dark Horse comics.
- In the comic Aliens vs. Predator vs. The Terminator, which is an unofficial sequel to Alien Resurrection, it's explained that the Earth was destroyed by Skynet and its Terminators. The nuclear strike called Judgment Day and/or the subsequent War Against the Machines may have been responsible for the destruction of Paris.
