Question
I join the following websites for very years now.
I thought they are all safe to used.
But I never really ask anyone.

Is the following websites safe to used?

http://marvel.wikia.com/Main_Page
http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page
www.mdediafire.com
www.freehostina.com
www.adrive.com
www.4shared.com
https://mega.co.nz

I hope it is yes to the last 5. I got a lot of files store in them.

Answer
I don't know.  I don't use them.  put the name in a Google search along with words like "vulnerable" or "attack" or "exploited".  Alternatively, run nmap and get a list of open ports.  You can use an NSE script to see what's running on ports that are open.
