Asterix erobert Rom

Um die schier unbezwingbaren Gallier ein für alle Mal in ihre Schranken zu weisen, fordert Cäsar sie zu 12 Prüfungen heraus. Im Erfolgsfall seiner Rivalen will er sich geschlagen geben. Asterix und Obelix werden für die Absolvierung der Aufgaben auserwählt, die sich aber selbst für die beiden als sehr schwierig erweisen.

  • Astérix (3) - Les 12 travaux d'Astérix

Les irréductibles Gaulois seraient des dieux ! Telle est la rumeur qui court dans les couloirs du Sénat, à Rome, pour expliquer l’inexplicable : l’impuissance de l’armée romaine face à Astérix et ses amis. « Des dieux ? Impossible ! », martèle César. Exaspéré, l’empereur met les Gaulois au défi d’accomplir avec succès douze épreuves que seuls d’authentiques dieux pourraient réussir. S’ils y parviennent, César promet de s’incliner devant ces Gaulois dignes d’Hercule et ses travaux. Mais s’ils échouent, la colère de Jules César sera terrible !

Dopo tanti terribili smacchi a Roma si comincia a credere che questi Galli siano veramente invincibili come dèi... Cesare, ormai arrabbiatissimo e definitivamente esasperato, decide di sottoporre l'astuto Asterix e il forzuto Obelix a dodici terribili prove. Se sono davvero dèi, riusciranno a portarle a termine, ma se non lo sono, proveranno tutta l'ira del divino Cesare, inutile dire che per il condottiero romano la sfida si trasformerà nell'ennesima delusione...
