Default How powerful is as3 and other questions

Hi I have few questions concerning as3 and web development and I'm starting to take this to the next level for my career.

Will as3 be around for long time? If so will it be in popular in-demand in industries to learn if your in the media/web development?

How powerful is as3? Compare it to as3 vs as2 and then compare it to c++ and other OOP languages. How far can as3 go?

Is as3 powerful enough to create 3d games? i know its well capable of making simple 2d games.

Along with as3, what other languages compliment as3?

Will Flash and Flex/as3 be replace by other programs/languages in the near futre?

Will as3 replace other languages? CSS/html javascript? ect.

Thank you for your time

1. AS3 only be around for a few more years...but AS as a whole has no foreseeable end (AS4 will replace AS3)

2. AS3 is fully object oriented unlike AS2. It's extremely powerful and intuitive for C++ devs

3. AS3 can make somewhat 3D games using tools like Papervision...but it's not a true 3D enviroment

4. AS3 can incorperate PHP and XML very well

5. No way...Adobe and Flash are arguably the leaders in the market right now
