After a group of legionaries is once again beaten up by the gauls, they imagine: "With such huge strength, they can't be human... they must be gods". Julius Caesar is informed, and laughs. He makes a decision with his council and goes to Armorica, to speak with Vitalstatistix. He gives the Gauls a series of 12 tasks, inspired by Hercules (but new ones, since the 12 Labours are outdated). Vitalstatistix assembles their best warriors, Asterix and Obelix, to do the job. The Roman Caius Tiddlus is sent along with them to guide them and check they complete each task.

Une ville a été abandonnée de ses habitants parce qu'ils ont peur d'une bombe qui est tombée dans la ville sans exploser. Un vagabond, ignorant ce qui se passe, arrive alors en ville. Comprenant que tout est désert, il s'approprie vêtements, objets et œuvres d'art, improvise une exposition en plein air, repeint les bâtiments en rose, joue de la musique. Lorsqu'il disperse dehors les billets conservés à la banque, les habitants, qui se sont réfugiés sur une colline voisine et l'observent depuis le début à l'aide d'une lunette, n'y tiennent plus : ils reviennent tous, ramassent l'argent, passent le vagabond à tabac et le chassent de la ville. Le vagabond se rend tout seul sur la colline à présent déserte, et, dans son dos, une explosion retentit : la bombe s'est déclenchée, et n'a laissé de la ville qu'un gigantesque cratère.
