Yeah, Wesker is nuts too. Why he has so much health I don't know.
There's nothing wrong with reading wiki to get a characters background. Otherwise how would anyone know where to even begin?
You're right! It's a good job effort-free wiki-based information has always been around for everything ever, how would people have even known how to cross the street!
Effort-free info = worthless and exposable.
Sarcasm. Helpful. I'm not saying we'd never get by without them, I'm just saying it's more expedient.
And I'm saying that this is a large part of the problem.
What exactly is the problem here? And what do you even mean by "exposable?" I'm guessing by "the problem" you mean people getting information second-hand, maybe not reading as much books and stuff, but I'm not talking about the impact of wikipedia as a whole, I'm talking about the ability to look up the history of some comic book characters, I hardly think that constitutes as a "problem" in ANY sense of the word.
Not to mention I found out about the majority of the comics I own through sites like wikipedia, which I probably wouldn't have known about or bought if not for that. There's not a huge array in the local library and there are no comic shops near me.
Is wikipedia a reliable, credible resource? No, probably not and if you're using it for research into a specific topic then it's highly unlikely to be of much use besides a starting point, but for a quick look-up of info it is pretty useful. It's not like wikipedia will ever be a substitute for reading the actual book or seeing the actual movie or whatever, I don't think I've ever come across anyone who's considered they'd read a book because they read the wikipedia synopsis.
