That argument makes no sense on multiple fronts. One, we don't know that they never cared about death before, you're just making a huge leap with no evidence to back it up. BW's dark past clearly bothers her, Cap went to a bar and tried to get drunk after Bucky "died." We don't know enough about Hawkeye to know how he handles death, Tony tends to hide his trauma behind snark and attitude as we see repeatedly, Thor wanting to avenge his death also makes sense since he did the same thing when Frigga died in TDW. So that part of your argument doesn't really work. Also, it's quite a different matter when someone that you're friends with dies, you react differently in that case.
