The Serpent in the Subway was a mysterious underground monster that attacked Paris, France.

The Suicide Squad were visiting on vacation, and they tried to subdue the beast. It chased them through the underground tunnels and escaped into the city. Rick Flag noticed that it could breathe both in water and on land, so he tried to suffocate it. This was difficult and the monster began attacking the Eiffel Tower. They manufactured a giant plastic bag and used it smother the serpent to death.[1]
