In 1951, a member of the Undersea Titans came to explore the surface, appearing in Paris. When the creature's moisture dried out it became an inert in front of Eiffel Tower.

When the Serpent was freed by Skadi, he called seven hammers to Earth, one of these fell in Paris. There Grey Gargoyle claimed it and made into Mokk, Breaker of Faith. Rampaging through the city Mokk killed thousands, petterfying any who looked upon him, like Midge Gotlib and then smashing them to pieces, creating massive piles of stone people.
Paris was the battle ground between Mokk and various armoured heroes like Iron Man, several Detroit Steels and finally Rescue before the Serpent summoned Mokk for the final battle. Rescue workers were on the scene even as these battle were ongoing. THe war ended when Thor felled the Serpent, and all the Worthy separated from their hammers, freeing their hosts. Many of the petrified citizens were restored by Odin, who seemingly revived every intact "statues" and seemingly many of the destroyed.
Humanitarian efforts continued, securing damaged sections of the city and processing those revived; these had side effects like amnesia, fatigue, insomnia and more. Doug Johnson was one of the revived  and eventually secured the means to return home.
A cult was formed around the Mokk's hammer in the catacombs, which had somehow been returned to Paris. Intent on returning everyone to the "blissful silence of the stone", it's members were massacred by Crossbones, who came to took the hammer away.
