Asterix and Cleopatra-Caesar's Spy

First appearance of Caesar's Spy

The Spy is a minor antagonist in the Belgian comic Asterix and Cleopatra. Caesar sent him to find out how an egyptian temple could be constructed very fast, when the architect is "a nitwit". The spy tells Caesar that Asterix, Obelix and Getafix are behind this.

In the comic

In the comic Asterix and Cleopatra, the spy is an egyptian, who can find out the secret because he looks like one of the builders. He is also shown in the comic Olympics in Lutetia as a member of the spy team lead by Tullius Detritus. In this comic he looks like in the movie, but his cloak is only coloured green instead of changing the colour.

Animated Movie

In the cartoon, he wears a cloak around his whole body which takes the colour of every background he stands in front of. With this power, the spy can become every shape he wants, for example a stone.

Live Action Movie

The Spy also appears in the live action film Asterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra, this time as a woman named Cartapus. She is portrayed by Chantal Lauby.
