The novels will feature four of the comics giant’s leading characters: Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman and Catwoman.  No doubt the company hopes to create some synergy between the ongoing wave of YA publications and the current, well-received TV comics characters TV series like The Flash and Supergirl.
