New Kirby - Cap Masterworks v2 and Milestones

At least two Marvel books with Kirby reprints in the past week, a Masterworks hardcover with with MODOK. I mention that just because I seem to get at least one hit every week from people searching for MODOK. And another in their Milestones line of cheaper reprints has two samples of Kirby featuring the origins of two of his most memorable villains.

Did anyone see a copy of the tradepaperback with the FF movie (featuring characters co-created by Jack Kirby) adaptation and various reprints? I could use some confirmation on which, if any, Kirby stories they picked for it. I assume the origin or something with Doom?

update: I'm told it has FF #5, the first Doom story

Who loves seconds? We love seconds—a second sensational serving of the Sentinel of Liberty! Yes, that’s right, the Mighty Minions of Marvel are chipping the next Cap Masterworks free from its icy fifteen-year slumber and you’re invited to the homecoming party. So strap on your shield and prepare for a barrage of Stan and Jack’s best as Cap (with a little help from his friends, the Avengers) battles a bevy of baddies like the strange Super-Adaptoid—the super-powered robot with the combined powers of the Avengers. And if an android passing himself off as Cap was as odious as you thought, the Red Skull tries to convince the people of America that Cap’s turned traitor. Yikes! Don’t crawl into your fallout shelter in shame, though. Our boy will bounce back to take on a hearty helping of that horrendous head, M.O.D.O.K.., in his first-ever appearance, before taking it home in a scintillating struggle against Baron Zemo, guest-starring Nick Fury, the Black Panther and Cap's super-spy gal, Sharon Carter!

The Milestones edition was pretty good. The origin of Doctor Doom is one of my favorite stories, and on of the few Chic Stone ink jobs over Kirby that I really liked. The art on the Subby story was great, but the story was poorly written. I doubt if the kids in that era cared one bit. And, the Captain America story was a hit on all fronts.
