Here's Tony killing Ebony Maw. with another quip.

So claiming that Tony won't kill Thanos, Ebony Maw & the rest of the Black Order, and thousands of mindless vicious outriders, who are all intent on killing ALL OF HUMANITY, because "it troubles him greatly" is preposterous.
I think the biggest difference between the MCU and the various DC movies is that the MCU doesn't spend too much time hand wringing about killing. I can only think of three times it comes up:
1) Banner gets upset when Thor tells him the Hulk killed a bunch of soldiers (and then backtracks by saying they were just severely injured)
2) Dr. Strange gets upset about killing, because of the Hippocratic Oath.
3) Spider-man doesn't want to kill and saves Vulture, which fits him because he's just a kid.

The Big 3 don't have any qualms.
