Hello, great people there. This is a script of the Avengers I am learning English with and I was wondering why there is "come" in the conversation. I think that considering the context, it should be "have come" or "came" or "have" is just omitted or is there a reason for the form?

 

Thank you so much as always and I really appreciate your time and help.
