Default Meta comic reading?

Do any of you catch up on comic back stories by reading character bios and such on Wikipedia?

I used to be in the xmen when i was a kid, but not so much anymore into comics. However, I still feel like I am in the loop by reading wikipedia.

I don't really follow comics anymore. Minus The Walking Dead and random issues of non-superhero stuff.

Yeah, when I buy a figure that I'm not to familiar with (X-19, Danger), I'll use Wiki to find out more about the character. Also, if I'm interested in whole stories (Planet Hulk), I'll use Wiki.

Why would you buy a figure that you're not familiar with?

You're not a......*GASP* fanboy are you?!??!

HAHAHA! I like to buy complete sets of figures. In the above case, I needed X-19 to complete my build-a-figure Apocalypse, and Danger to complete my build-a-figure Brood Queen (or was it Blob?). I usually don't buy random figures outta the blue. Except for Composite Superman. I knew nothing of Composite Superman but had to buy him just cause he was so freakin bizzare looking.

I hate reading a bio on wiki only to find out it was a fictional character bio. There are real people with shorter entries.
