The Romans basically took the Greek gods and absorbed them into Roman culture, renaming them in the process. It's like if the Justice League was really popular, and Marvel just took the exact same Justice League characters and renamed them but didn't change their powers or costumes.

They did much more than just rename. They changed the personalities and (sometimes) the spheres of influence. Athena (for example) was the center of greek power, while Minerva (the roman version) was not a military deity like the greek counterpart. They are two different goddesses, even though they were the same.
Ares to mars changed Ares from a bloodthirsty maniac to a respectable god of war.
Some gods didn't change at all from the Greek-Roman transition.
I'm taking a mythology class at the moment, so I had to clear this up.
