Subj: so, what I got with my Prof. X, Thor, Hawkgirl, Mr. F, and Flash picks is not only a versatile and powerful team

I see a couple of great values here. Thor, being only $3, assuming it is classic Thor is a steal. Professor X at $3 is a good leader and also top tier powerwise. Mr. Fantastic is reasonably powerful and the best deus ex machina tech in comics. Black Panther at $2 is also a steal. IM has the benefit of being very powerful and a good tech guy, but I think Mr. F and BP are excellent picks...

I'm going with:
The Leader: Professor X...top level psi power with good leadership
ability, and if he isn't in the field,
my other pics are also capable in that role
The Muscle: Thor. Classic Thor I have a guy nearly as strong as the
Hulk, with the highest Energy projection of anyone
on this list...
Enforcer Hawkgirl: Nth metal has some useful properties against some
and makes her a threat against even some big league
opponents, which Punny and Black Widow aren't. Wolverine
has almost deus ex machina healing and cutting, but at $5
he's to expensive. Cable at 1 might be the biggest steal
but I'm assuming that his psi is kept very much in check,
so its pretty much classic Cable with almost no super
Technician: Mr. Fantastic...he's actually pretty powerful, a pretty
good field leader, and has the most deus ex machina tech
showings in comdics. I did consider going with BP and
pushing for Wolverine, but that leaves the team overall
weaker IMO
Wild Card: Flash...look, both Spidey and GL are good picks
and depends on which GL, because some could be great
secondary leaders. GL's have great EP and versatility, and
Spidey punches way out of his weight class...still, spidey
is overcosted IMO for what he gives you, and while GL
is a value at 3, Flash brings solid power and his own deus
ex machina power with the speed force and speed tricks

On a good showing, Flash can own teams by stealing speed
or whatever....on a lower showing, he could lose
to Spidey, but is still something to be reckoned with, and
pairing him with Reed Richards is a potentially dynamite
combination (not to mention giving Reed access to nth metal)

So, my team of Professor X, Thor, Hawkgirl, Mr. Fantastic, and the Flash

with alternate versions that swap Flash and GL and/or Richards and Black Panther

I don't think you get much from bumping to Iron Man from those two honestly.

For a pretty even match, you stick with Professor X, take Shazam, Wolverine, Mr. Fantastic, and Green Lantern (or Black Panther and Flash)...Shazam doesn't bring as much plot device power as Thor, but is a true peer to Superman IMO, and Wolverine brings his own plot device power in the enforcer category, and is probably better than Hawkgirl

but also a team with at least 4 characters that have shown massive plot device powers...Thor's godblast and other stuff, Mr. F tech, Flash speed force and speed tricks, and Hawkgirl nth metal. In any given situation, someone is going to pull out a win with one of those...
