The series' title logo.

LEGO Spider-Man: Irresponsible is a web series conceived and created by Max Carroll. It is intended to be released alongside The Stunning LEGO Spider-Girl and as a back-up to The Sensational LEGO Spider-Man. Akin to The Spectacular Spider-Man animated series, Irresponsible is primarily influenced by the Stan Lee/Steve Ditko and Stan Lee/John Romita Sr. runs on The Amazing Spider-Man. However, it also tends to take influence from all eras of the comic's run and other sources such as Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy, Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man duology, Spider-Man: The Animated Series, Spider-Man: Chapter One, and the Ultimate Spider-Man comics.

While the series is inspired by The Spectacular Spider-Man in terms of principality and execution, the show itself is more an original take on the Spider-Man mythos, re-inventing a sizeable portion of the classic Spider-Man supporting cast and foes, as well as re-telling the 55+ year history of Spider-Man in a familiar, yet fresh, fashion that hasn't been seen yet.

The series was followed by 3 sequels and 3 spin-offs; LEGO Spider-Man: Torment, LEGO Spider-Man: The Final Chapter, and LEGO Spider-Man: Requiem, with the spin-offs being LEGO Spider-Man 2099: World of Tomorrow, LEGO Spider-Man: Timestorm, and LEGO Scarlet Spider: The Lost Years.
