Stardust & Stephen Amell team-up to deliver donation to Toronto charity

Stephen Amell on Facebook

Maybe that Stardust isn't such a bad guy after all. Or maybe this is one of those times when the hero and the villain have to team up to take down a more dangerous foe.

We told you back before SummerSlam about the special edition event shirt Stephen Amell put on sale, with proceeds to benefit Toronto's Emily House - a hospice for children with cancer. Yesterday, the once (and future?) foes met up to deliver the proceeds to the facility.

And it was quite a haul - almost 300K!

The pair came together - despite persistant rumors that their issues aren't settled - because Stardust promised to show up with nemesis should Amell's shirt drive result in 10,000 sales. It did, and the Strange One and the Emerald Archer called a truce for a good cause.

The star of The CW's Arrow summed up the experience on his Facebook page:

Sometimes you need to put your differences aside for a good cause. So today... Stardust and I presented Emily's House in Toronto with a check for $297,557 and helped open the Dream Space Playroom in memory of Oliver "Odd Sock Ollie" Muirhead. Can't really put into words what a special morning this was. The people who work and volunteer and Emily's House are actual real life superheroes. The Muirhead family should know that their Son left a wonderful impression. And forgive the break in character for a moment, but Cody Rhodes is one of the most selfless, genuine human beings I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. What a day. SA

Stardust probably wants to know who this "Cody Rhodes" character is, and Steve Austin is probably still stewing over the whole angle...

But kudos to both guys for using a fun story for a good cause.
