In him he sees a kind of father figure.

Ruthlessness and violence have ruled in Gotham City for a long time. Thomas Wayne now explains his long-awaited candidacy for the city’s mayor and is the only one who can save Gotham from chaos.

When Arthur opens a letter from his mother to Wayne, he learns that he himself is the child of a love affair between his mother and her then employer Wayne. He then went to Wayne’s private property and met Wayne’s young son Bruce there. A little later, a security guard – Alfred Pennyworth – joins him, who tells him that he is Penny Fleck’s son and wants to speak to Thomas Wayne. Pennyworth then replied that he didn’t know that he had been adopted by his mother, that Mrs. Fleck “signed a lot of papers” at the time.

Arthur comes into the sight of the police through his former employer. When two investigators visit Arthur’s apartment and find only his mother Penny there, there is an argument, at the end of which Penny comes to the hospital with a stroke and is subsequently in a coma. At the same time, Arthur continues to try as a stand-up comedian, but an appearance at a talent show becomes a disgrace. In addition, a recording of this appearance is leaked to the show by Murray Franklin, where he is revealed to be ridiculous as an unsuccessful “joker”. However, the editorial team receives many positive audience reactions to Arthur, so he is invited to one of the next shows. Arthur sneaks in at a charity gala and confronts Thomas Wayne in the visitor toilet that he is his son.

Arthur now steals from the institution in which his mother was imprisoned during his childhood, the file which the version of the security guard officially documents. According to her, she ended up in the psychiatric ward after allowing her partner to abuse her adopted son.

Arthur is losing his mind. He suffocates his mother with a pillow in the hospital bed and rehearses his appearance with Murray Franklin in the living room, including suicide in front of a live audience. He receives a visit from his ex-colleagues Gary and Randall, who condolences to his mother’s death. Randall also wants to make sure that Arthur does not contradict his own testimony when asked by the police. Then Arthur stabs Randall while he lets Gary, who has always been nice to him, run. Arthur then sets off for the performance. On the way, the two investigators try to stop him. Arthur flees from them. When escaping, they meet a larger group than clowns in costumes in a subway. One of them is accidentally shot by one of the police officers. Both are seriously injured in the turmoil that follows, while Arthur can escape. When appearing on Murray Franklin’s show, Arthur wears his typical appearance from now on: reddish suit, green-colored hair, clown make-up on his face. He can be imagined as a “joker”, behaves in an affected and unadjusted manner and shows that he had killed the three men in the subway and that, in his view, the murders would not have interested anyone if people like him had been killed. Franklin doesn’t know whether to think this is a very bad joke or the truth and responds with professional polite outrage. The joker then shoots the moderator. while Arthur can escape.
