They are relatively reliable, it generally depends on what sort of information you are looking for, and the depth of context you are also searching for.

They are good as a secondary information source, for brushing up on various characters, when it's been a while since you've read any comics with appearances of those characters.

As a primary information source, it's good for a general outline. As long as you keep in mind that they might have errors, or just plain lack information.

For general info? Definitely. But the deeper you go the more discrepancies you find.

I find anime wikis to be very helpful when I need a quick bit of info on a character I don't know.

The Comic Vine wiki is due to its high moderation. I don't know how well moderated others are though.
